Cold Winter's Day Kayaker

I was walking around some working docks in Ballard along the north shore of the ship canal when I spotted some ducks and some lovely reflections of boats and pink clouds. I tried to capture a shot on my iPhone, but the ducks were unnerved by my presence. I was concentrating so much on them that I completely missed seeing a kayaker heading into shore until he was nearly there. He hauled his craft out and I noticed it had wheels at one end and a handle at the other, and he just pulled it along the street behind him to his vehicle a block or so away. What an ideal easy set up. I think even I could manage to launch and haul out a kayak like that one by myself. It was super cold out, so kudos to him for the dedication to get out there on the water and paddle down the canal.
