Monday — never an easy time for the outdoors enthusiast. After a weekend of adventure, returning to the humdrum work-a-day world can make one melancholy. To help ease the transition, every Monday we feature a 90 Second Escape — essentially, a 90-second video of a place you’d probably rather be: a trail, a park, a greenway, a lake … anywhere as long as it’s not under a fluorescent bulb.
Today’s 90-Second Escape: Standup paddleboarding.
Saturday, I had a chance to be on the water. Then I saw that the temperature at put-in time was forecast to be below freezing. Realizing that my kayak isn’t equipped with an ice-breaker, I passed.
But the seed was planted. I couldn’t get my mind off being on the water on a warm, summer’s day. Others, I realized, might be of like mind. Hence, today’s 90 Second Escape to being on — literally — the water a couple summers back.
