Kayak people

I took Alice for a walk around the lake today and met a man who drove his bike to the shoreline trailing  one kayak behind him.  I stopped to talk to him about the bike trailer (he bought it on the internet) and he said it could carry two kayaks as shown above.  We agreed that twilight was the best time to be on the water.  I was envious when I later saw him paddling effortlessly eastward.  If I ever have money again, I will buy a kayak and a bike trailer.  If not, I'll keep renting kayaks and walking Alice around the lake or sitting on a bench near the water.  I will feed the voracious ducks and maybe again see one hundred geese sitting quietly on the water facing  shore like tankers in a harbor.
