How Green the Water Looks From the Cockpit of a Kayak

August 24th, 2009 at 05:19 pm

I was really waffling on how to spend my last day at home. The weather, as I've mentioned, has not been cooperative, but today is a decent day and not as humid as it's been.

I was torn between kayaking, bike riding or tackling my "to do" list.

After reading MonkeyMama's post, i decided to do the kayaking. I've only been out once this summer, and I'd been wanting to go on a quiet weekday when I knew I'd have the lake to myself.

I was out for 2.5 hours and got another good upper body workout in. Only three boats passed me; otherwise, complete solitude. The sound of my paddle dipping into the water becomes rhythmic and so relaxing. Still, I could feel my stomach muscles tightening as I put some "oomph" into my paddling.

Saw 5 great blue herons. (It's possible some were the same bird.)

Emerald green waters

    Yay! I am glad you went - very pretty.

    The bike ride we did also has a lot of kayakers (in the water of course). My dh used to ocean kayak and I think if I Can get him on the water he may get back into it. IF we kayak - I am not taking a camera though. LOL. I can just see falling in the water!

    Nice pictures Fern. I enjoyed them. I'd love to go kayaking myself but I sink.
