Last week I took some money I had saved and my Yukon Bonus cheque and bought myself a kayak! After 2 summers of trying out different boats and renting every kind I could find, I finally settled on a Perception Carolina 14.5. I love it!
Stuart spent last weekend building a rack for my truck. It's way too long to just prop into the box!
Nothing gets done around here without a little canine assistance! This is Bandit giving his approval on the boards!
The finished product! I think it turned out great. I can load and unload the boat myself. Which is important since Stuart hates kayaking and I will be going alone most of the time!
This afternoon, I went paddling on Kookatsoon lake--really a glorified slough, but it works!
The view from where I sit!
It was a beautiful day!
I paddled around for a couple hours, but then the clouds starting to roll in.
I went home before I got caught in the rains!
I have all of this week off work and I'm hoping to get out paddling lots!!
