The other morning my husband and I were able to take our kayaks out to a local state park.  It is so peaceful and tranquil on the water that when your mind and heart is a bit cluttered, you go and engage in this activity and instantly you feel lightened and refreshed.

This park is wonderful and very large but we seldom see people out enjoying the beauty of the park.  But this day we did actually, see quite a few people on the lake.  Here are some random photos that had interested me as we paddled along the shoreline.

  1. How beautiful! Kayaks are on our wish list as we both love the water, nature, and exploring. Oh the places you’ll be able to go with your kayaks when/if you make it to PR! The sky’s the limit!! So jealous! 😉 Too fun!!

  2. Lovely post. I am particularly drawn to the kayak life as well. My wife and I routinely go out in our yaks for much of the paddling season, which isn’t enough here in Minnesota. Even so, we take good advantage of it. Many a time we’ll pack our supper and paddle out someplace pretty, and just sort of drift along, whilst scarfing down a sandwich, and watching the ever changing scenery slowly dawdle by. I love it. Now all the lakes are frozen solid of course, and the kayaks are in storage. Snow blows across my driveway, and the temperatures descend below zero. Kayaking will have to wait a while. And I do miss it so. Aw well.

    • Oh, thank you, so much and I’m glad you enjoyed it! We love to go out to our local state park and enjoy the scenery and peacefulness. My husband has even fished in his kayak. Taking a lunch/supper out on the water sounds lovely as you listen to the sounds of nature. Spring can’t come soon enough!
