This is not taken from my Valley Nordkapp blue on gray kayak. But it could be. You see, when one spends hours in the cockpit, this is what they see. Whether it is this kayaker from a distant sea looking over his map, tow line and bilge pump, or my kayak in Illinois, the view is the same. Blue deck. Pointed nose like a porpoise, diving through the waves. It is a view all kayakers know well.
