I’ve always enjoyed being on the water.
A few years ago, when our oldest was a toddler, I took kayaking lessons and it was heavenly. I even learned how to do a wet-exit!
Since then I haven’t done much kayaking…only when we rent a cottage that happens to have one.
Earlier this summer, I went over to a friends house and saw she had bought a kayak. She talked about how awesome it was to go out on her own, and it even fit IN her car, so it was pretty easy.
I was inspired, so hunted around for a used sit-on-top kayak that could fit in my small SUV (and 8-footer) and found this one:
I’m not planning on going all hardcore and paddling several times a week or anything, but I’ve been out once with that very friend who inspired me and it was completely perfection! I hope to get a couple more outings in before it gets too cold.
