water adventures

For the past few years, Marc and I have been dying to buy our own kayaks.  After spending both weeks up at the cottage searching for kayaks to rent and never being able to find any available, we decided to finally take the plunge and buy our own.  We waited all summer for the best sale and finally at the end of September we went for it.  Luckily for us, my parents also really wanted to get into kayaking, so we struck a deal with them where we bought 1 kayak and they bought the other so that between us, we have 2.

We weren't sure if we would be able to use them this year, but a few weeks ago we lucked out with a bunch of really nice days, so we were able to take them out for a quick paddle in the Niagara River.

 After Uma & Upa came back, Marc and I took Poppy for a quick paddle.  By the time we came back to the shore it was dark already.  And now it looks like we probably will have to wait until next year to use them again...

I love Kayaking! Good for you! And looks like you have a really nice area to paddle in... just don't' get too close to the falls ;)

Sweet! Doug has a kayak as well... but I prefer to stay shore-bound. ;-)
