Viking kayak

Viking kayak stencil hmm

Long story short, I saw a buncha gorgeous wooden kayaks today (so ya know I got out!)—thanks* to KW—, and this was on the nose of one of the less glamorous specimens. My conclusion: a Viking(?) kayak is a rare and lovely thing.

* And thanks ever so much, KW; more than you know.

    Yeah, I think that was a Viking “style” kayak 🙂

    It sort of reminds me of the “Piasa Bird” painted by Native Americans on the bluffs of the Mississippi near Alton, IL. Well, except it doesn’t have wings.

    It is Michu Pichu the lynx god of Lake Superior! The “original” is on a rock face on the north shore of Lake Superior in Ontario.

  4. Sherry says:

    …but you knew that already! Really, though, maybe the original is on the kayak?
