paddle & portage (and the 100th post!)

Now, this event is about as 'Madison' as Madison can get - a quick canoe around Lake Mendota (well, it seems quick when you're sitting on the grass watching the action in comfort) - then...




...they run up the hill to the capitol with the canoes on their heads...




...where a huge crowd wait waiting for them, clapping and cheering them on. Around the capitol square, then down the hill into Lake Monona and a quick paddle around there. Phew! I'm exhausted just writing about it. My husband did the paddle & portage a few years ago and had a blast.
My own little achievement isn't nearly quite so arduous or sweat inducing, but today marks the 100th post of Madison Daily Photo, so I give myself a little pat on the back and thank you all for your visits & comments!

Chris, Congratulations on your 100th post! Put it on the Dp Forum News so that more people are aware of it; it's a cause to celebrate! Madison's lakes are quite lovely, aren't they and paddle and portage event must be a blast!

Yes, Isabella, there are women in the race. There are multiple race classes for females. I've done the race for ten years and it's a hoot! So come to Madison next year with a friend and a canoe. The race is on the third weekend in July.
But remember, Madison is such a nice town, you may never leave. Like our hostess, I came in 1985 and I'm still here!
