Bobbing Along

With the purchase of a couple of kayaks our stay-cations just got a lot more fun!



We've been "trying out" kayaks from Western Canoe Kayak in Abbotsford annually for a few years now.


Always something came up that made us postpone the purchase.


But we've finally taken the plunge. Well, not literally; no one has been dumped in the water yet. The kayaks are surprisingly stable.


I'm looking forward to the mini-vacations. There are plenty of small "no motor boat" lakes to explore around here. 


We purchased the kayaks yesterday and today we went to Abbotsford's Mill Lake to get them out for their inaugural run. 


Even in the midst of the city it was peaceful just bobbing along out there.




We didn't have to buy expensive, ugly roof racks for my car either! Both kayaks load quickly and securely into the back of my husband's truck and only require a tie down rope.
