I went kayaking the other night. The water was really warm..like pee..that doesn’t happen very often in Minnesota. Usually our lakes are cool and refreshing. I stayed near shore. I am not an idiot. One of the major rules about kayaking is don’t get too far from shore because you may have to swim back! I found the kayak to be more tippy than a canoe. The double paddle felt strange so I will probably buy myself a canoe paddle.
I stayed dry..it was peaceful and calm out on the lake..quiet too.. only the squawking of a Great Blue Heron and the sound of Chance splashing in the water interrupted the silence:)
