Summer rudely interrupted our fun this weekend, with muggy weather and temperatures occasionally topping 100ºF just a couple days after Harvard’s commencement exercises were nearly rained out. We should be swimming and boating, but in reality we have retreated to our air conditioned homes and our television sets. Spy Pond is right down the road but, like most of the water around here, it is too polluted for safe swimming. But for that (and a place to store it), I’d buy myself a kayak. A sad waste of a precious weekend.
Ah, screw this, I’m gonna go bike into Harvard Square and wander around aimlessly for an hour. 🙂
They do make folding & inflatable kayaks. I’ll get one one of these years (this year’s fancy toy purchase is likelier to be techie gadgetry of the Steve Jobsian cellphone variety). Not as if a pond has to be all that clean just to boat in it.
