Canoeing, Kayaking & Hiking, that's what I'm talkin bout!

Had a great time canoeing, hiking and kayaking today! Here are a few shots from our day and let me just say, it was HOT HOT HOT!!! No worries, we drank plenty of water and enjoyed a few snacks during our adventure.

The three of us started out in one canoe, that was interesting! It wasn't very steady and honestly, we felt like we couldn't move without worrying the canoe would flip. When a kayak was available, we headed back to shore and I jumped into a Kayak. I wasn't sure if I would like it but I did. It was very fun but I had this issue, right right right, I kept going in right circles... crazy thing is... I am right handed, so I thought it would be left circles but who know's. None the less, it was very fun and let me say, the Kayak is a big workout... great upper body, core and obliques... I might be sore in the morning!

After canoeing and kayaking we enoyed a two mile hike... again, oh so HOT but none the less, we had a great time. Here are a few snap shots:


  1. Dosnt it feel great being out and living??? I am so proud of you! I am still worried I will sink a kayak or flip in it and not have the strength to flip it back over! Awesome job!!!
