I hurt my shoulder

Today I went to the doctor to have my shoulder looked at today. It has been hurting for a while. I haven't been doing as much paddling as I would like. I have a small tear in one of the muscles. I will have to do a few weeks of physical therapy. I am betting one of the exercises won't be the rowing machine. I don't start the therapy for 2 weeks so I will have to be patient. This is going to cut down on my time out on the water.   :-(

The good news is I have a lot of wood turning classes coming up so I was going to be pretty busy teaching and wouldn't have a lot of time to paddle. I was planning on a day or 2 on the water though. Time will tell. And I will definitely be back out there.

Black & White Wednesday

This is an older picture. I was unable to get out on the water last weekend. I liked this picture it reminded me of a little kid sitting over in the corner thinking if I don't look at you then you really aren't there.

As I drifted by, this guy never moved. Although it is amazing how fast they are able to move when the mood strikes them. And you hate to see them slide into the water as you approach. Especially if the water is dark and you can't see where they are going. 

I hope you enjoy the picture and my the alligators always ignore you too !!!
