first time in kayak again

There were more or less two hours today without snow or rain – and we were fortunate (and brave) enough to get on the water for a first kayak trip on the Zuerich lake exactly in these two hours. Water and air temperature about 5 degree Celsius – not my favorite temperatures, but enough for a short tour along the seaside promenade. We passed by the Tinguely machine and I told Enrico about the story of this attraction.

For those who are interested in how it was set up at the start, here an old video (1967):

After nearly five winter months, with too much cold days, very few sunny days, and without kayaking, it was a relief to see that I’m still able to paddle … When we came back to our starting point a chilly wind sprung up, and we were happy to get back home to warm up our feets and hands.
