…is the look on people’s faces when I pass them on the road, kayak on roof, in “cold” weather. I often wish I had a dash cam so that I could make a compilation of this to share with others.
Many are clearly oblivious to everything around them, or have their eyes downcast to their phone, but the others are what interest me. I often see heads turned slightly, chin upraised, and the looks cover quite a range including: wistful, pensive, doubtful, dumbstruck and incredulous. Some are so clearly taken aback you can almost hear them saying “what’s that crazy bastard up to?”
What about the rest of you that paddle when some (or most) of the water is a little “firm” still? Do you notice others’ looks? Do they notice you?
