Well, I did it. I got into my kayak and I paddled. I paddled till my arms were burning. Then I panicked when I realized I had been blown completely off course and I was soaking wet.
Frantically trying to navigate back to shore was not easy, I was splashed repeatedly in the face and was violently accosted by icy, icy waves. I may have misjudged the season by about a month. Will try again once the hypothermia has subsided. I have to at least one more time before I deliver her to her new owner.
After John dragged me on deck he made me a hot water bottle( shaped like a penguin), and tucked my bright red shivering self under some quilts. I guess I should check a thermostat next time I feel like jumping into the lake, or maybe a calendar.
