Kayaking into nature

I think one of the best things I ever did was purchase kayaks for our log home. It lets you slip quietly into nature without the roar of a boat motor. It allows you to hear the birds singing and the wind rustling through the trees. I am able to get much better photographs of the wildlife that I love so much.

I purchased recreational kayaks as I don't see any member of my family having the desire to go down cliffs with rocky rapids that require a helmet! They aren't that expensive - Price ranges from $180 - $900+. And just seeing my husband and stepson's smiling faces as they glide on by the log cabin and wave to me definitely made it worth the purchase.

Big Greg and Little Greg enjoying the day.

Good Morning Mr. Heron. You look very nice today.

Hello Mr. Loon. Glad you decided to make your home on my lake.

Well hello kitty cat. How is the fishing today?

Beautiful pictures! I just can't think of anything better than being on the quite lake early in the morning.

Cassie said...

Ahhh yes. Peaceful waters. Once we are up here full time kayaks are in the picture. Do they make AARP friendly ones?!

All work and no play makes Greg a dull man.

Brandi - Morning are just the best. I'm sure they are for fishing too - right?!

Cassie - Yes - there are AARP friendly - just get the "sit on top" one.

Bobbi - thank you so much!

Gill - the bugs haven't been too bad but I do put on bug spray before heading out.

Jen - I told him he needs to get crack a lackin (my new favorite phrase! I'm still laughing out loud about it!)

Hi Shelley!
I'm an insomniac - I rarely sleep more than 3 hours a night. Because I'm awake so much during the night, I get to read lots of books. I also get lots of blogging done when the family is asleep - otherwise, I wouldn't have time for anything!

Great pictures Shelley, I love the one of the heron.
