I love finding quiet lakes to paddle on.
I've been checking the weather nearly every day, waiting for the right conditions to head out in the canoe for the first time this year. Yesterday morning was it. Full sun, no wind, ice-free, and the loons had returned... There was no way anything was stopping me. So...
The other night, we went for a canoe ride. The lake was like glass and the weather was warm. Dragonflies darted about and a loon decided to make a visit.
Sean and I had quite the adventure on the Kickapoo River this past Memorial Day weekend. So today, I’m sharing our experience and what we did and didn’t like about it.
Canoeing has always been a pretty big part of my life. My parents have had their kevlar canoe for as long as I can remember – taking it on backwoods canoe trips or quiet rides around the lake. When I was really little, I’d sit in the middle, sometimes trailing my hand through the cool water.
