“Kayak” is not just a website
Posted by Lissa on August 29, 2011
Good morning everyone! Fed up by my feet problems and utter lack of exercise, I begged Mike to take me kayaking.
OH MY GOD MY ARMS AND CHEST MUSCLES ALMOST DID NOT SURVIVE THE TRIP. It was just an easy mile down to the bar and back, and several times I wondered if my upper body was going to give out before we got back. I took rather a lot of short breaks, letting Mike do more of the work. (well, the majority of the weight in our kayak was his, y’know? 🙂 )
It was beautiful on the river:
We saw some big fat black vultures, hawks, herons, cranes and lots of other birds. We also almost crashed into a fallen tree because I was busy looking at a turtle.
And we saw not a single alligator, hooray! (I did have Siguette along for gator-protection)
Happy Monday everyone!
