Kanaan on Christmas

Christmas day, perfectly suited for a kayak trip! There weren’t that many of us around this day, but in our small boat house a third enthusiast turned up (although no picture of him). The sandy beach was frozen hard as concrete.

Temperature was just below the freezing point.

Water on spray deck, PFD and clothes frooze.

Yep, that’s ice (very thin).

Took a short stop at the Kanaan beach. Had to break through some thin ice to reach it. Passers by generally did not expect kayakers at this time of year. One guy, seemingly less surprised, asked us for an Eskimo roll demonstration… We were not up to it.

Returned passing the Royal palace at Drottningholm in fog.

The only other kayakers we saw this day.
