Weekly Photo Challenge: Lunchtime!

By Vladimir Brezina

This week’s Photo Challenge is Lunchtime.

When lunchtime rolls around, we’ve already been paddling for hours—and we are starving!

Sometimes we land. Over the years, we’ve had lunch in many memorable, picturesque spots—

But often it’s just not convenient to land. We have our lunch on the water—

And in winter we really don’t want to get out of our boats at all. We raft up for a few minutes in the lee of a convenient windbreak—on a Manhattan circumnavigation, we head for our favorite barge off Randall’s Island—for some hot tea and salami and cheese—

And let me tell you, it tastes damn good under the circumstances!

(And a second post on the Lunchtime theme, showing our most recent lunch at the barge, is here.)
