At the lake

 I spent the afternoon today at the lake enjoying the water and the sunshine. How nice it was to be out there! 
I'm in the process of looking for another boat and tried a few today.  I received some good advice from the individual in this picture about some of the different kayaks.  I was leaning toward a 14 footer, but tried a 17 foot Storm from Current Design that glided thru the water with ease.
  That extra footage is great for storing cargo and quick paddling thru the water, but questionable when it comes to storage in the garage!  Or lifting it for that matter! 
Whatever I end up choosing, I'm sure as soon as it's put in the water, I'll have a great time out there using it.  :)

What a wonderful place to spend the day. Makes me want to pack up and spend the weekend at the coast.

oh you make me miss kayaking so bad, I taught kayaking for kids up in Clayton, Georgia years ago.  I loved it so much.  I don't know why I never do it anymore.
