#20 Paddling Pic: Mr. and Ms. September

Posing nude for a calendar would have to be the number one thing that I could have never imagined myself doing. But if it was going to happen it would have to be in a canoe! It took some convincing, but Reid and I are now Mr. and Ms. September in this year's Nudes of Wakefield Calendar. Thanks to the amazing Franziska Heinze it turned out to be a fun, hilarious rocking good time and I think the checker-board pattern that was branded on Reid's butt from the cane seat has finally faded. The immensely popular calendar is in its 10th year and is a fund-raiser for local charities. So, Mr. and Ms. September want to know...have you ever paddled naked? Pictures optional.😁

About Today's Paddling Pic: These last few days and weeks I've found myself looking back on some wonderful memories and images of where canoeing has taken me, and it's made me smile. I feel so fortunate and grateful for these places, people and experiences, and it's kind of nice to reminisce. And in doing so I can't help but to also look forward to a time when we can all paddle safely again! So for the next while Reid and I are posting a picture a day (with a story) that will brighten our day and hopefully yours too. I invite you to share your stories in the comment section.
