Playing Hooky

By , May 15, 2015

We played hooky yesterday, something we don’t do often. In fact, in choosing the title of this piece, I learned that I don’t even really know how to spell “hooky.”

Friends of ours have dedicated their summer, or at least the finer weathered portions of it, to kayaking. They invite us along often, but we rarely go, as we need to work, particularly when the sun shines. Yesterday, though, we gave into the temptation, and had an excellent adventure.

Very briefly, we paddled down the east coast of Chilkat Peninsula and visited the two islands beyond it, Taisani and Anyaka. We had mirror flat water much of the way, saw a whale, sea lions and lots of sea, shore and song birds, beach combed a bit, and visited.

We had a really good time! We got home around 10:00 p.m, just before dark. It was a good day of hooky—which I will now extend by saying no more about it.
