More Summer Travels-Learning to Kayak?


As KI and I travel to our many camping locations these summer weekends, I often wish we had a boat. Doesn’t matter what kind, row boat, pontoon, or even a kayak. We both did a lot of boating when we were younger. Kim’s family had a cabin cruiser, mine a sailboat. But even as we grew into adulthood, I would still boat. My older sister, Nancy, and I once paddle boated in Central Park. I don’t even know if that is possible these days. There was also the Minnesota summer where I took my nieces and nephews on two separate occasions pontoon boating for the afternoon on one of Minnesota’s 10,000 lakes.

Boating is relaxing in a way camping may not always be. There is a lot of set up and take


down with camping. With a boat during a day trip, you just hop in, grab the cooler and camera and go!


After the return from our most recent camping trip, I  am fixated now on learning to kayak. As a 50 something year old, I think I can handle that. It looks manageable, I think. I am more worried about how to store my camera.

What a great opportunity to see wildlife up close! Luckily there are rental kayaks at some of the campgrounds we book. KI knows that once I get my hooks into an idea I don’t let it go until I have tried it. It may even happen this Fourth of July weekend.




Wish me luck! I’ll let you know how it turns out.

Enjoy today’s photos of the boats we see on our adventures. And Happy Fourth of July!

    Have a fun 4th. Enjoy whatever you do in a boat. I don’t think I could get in and out of one

    You’ll love kayaking! I took to this a few years back when I was in Australia. Of course, I wasn’t too worried about my camera…more, where the crocodiles where! Anything sighted with a big nose and I could reach impressive speeds in my water transport.
