Father’s Day Paddle

click photo to enlarge. My second Father’s Day was awesome. Kate and Erin took me out to breakfast to a nice greasy spoon in town and afterwards we went out to the lake. Erin was more excited about getting in the boat than ever. She even let us put her PFD on without that much […]

Black Bear Sighting

I found my new favorite local paddling place. The Wallkill River National Wildlife Refuge. It’s about a 10 minute drive from my front door – and I went to explore it in my canoe this afternoon. The Wallkill River is a lazy river, on average about 40-feet wide, with a slow – yet very constant […]

Early Morning Paddle

I got the canoe on the car, late last night. Soon after, the paddles, pfd and packed dry bag were also packed tight. I made sure everything was set before going up to bed. I awoke early this morning, dressed and drove across state lines to the lake. I wish I could say I was […]

Coeur d’Alene, Idaho

Just got back from a business trip to Coeur d’Alene, Idaho. We stayed at the big resort on the northern shore of Lake Coeur d’Alene. The local Indian tribe were named “Coeur d’Alene” by the French settlers. It means “Heart of an Awl” reflecting the local tribe’s sharp trading practices. The 25-mile lake is home […]

Easter Sunday & Big News

I guess it’s not too hard to be a proud dada when you have such a beautiful little girl. This has become an annual sitting spot for our Easter photos. It’s on the steps of a brownstone on the Upper East Side of Manhattan, in our church’s neighborhood. This is as good a time as […]

Maiden Voyage

What a morning! I took off work today because the weather was going to be so nice – 75 and sunny – and it was! I chose Wawayanda State Park for my new canoe’s maiden voyage and I’m sure glad I did. This is a 18,235 acre state park housing an abundance of natural resources […]

Dry Dock

When we got home last night, it was raining and so I decided to leave the new canoe on the car overnight. Afterall, the bottom of the canoe seemed like it could get wet without serious consequences… This morning, I got to work on our garage and cleaned it up a bit to make room […]

My New Canoe!

Mission Complete – It was quite the productive (and expensive!) day here, in the blaqenedwyte household. It began with the long drive to central New Jersey to participate in the annual PaddleSport 2006 show, where I took major advantage of some spectacular discounts to purchase a Thule roof rack, 2 Astral PFD’s, 2 bent-shaft BB […]

Art & Porn

We were discussing in the comments over at J-Wild’s blog that there are fundamental differences between nakedness in fine art and nudity in pornography and I felt this topic should be granted some more thought on my part. Most humans who have grown up in countries that have an appreciation for the arts have been […]

Click each photo to enlarge. This is Bessie. We adopted Bessie in 2001 from a wonderful Doberman Rescue shelter. We don’t believe that she was the victim of serious physical abuse (like so many others), but she shows signs of serious neglect and will flinch slightly if I raise my hand too quickly. She’s not […]
