The First Canoe Ride
This last winter, I spent a lot of time thinking about all the things I wanted to do once summer came around. One of the top things on my list was to explore more lakes around Wisconsin. So one day, I hopped on Craigslist, curious to see if there were any canoes for sale nearby.
I slowly scrolled through the listings, most of them asking $1000 or more for their canoes when finally I came across this one. A pretty yellow, advanced fiberglass, 17-foot canoe with two wooden paddles, for only $225.
A few days later, we had strapped it onto Sean’s trailer and bought it home 🙂
So finally this last weekend, Sean and I tossed a couple lifejackets in, grabbed the camera, and headed out. It was about 70 degrees out and sunny with hardly any wind – perfect conditions to canoe in.
We paddled around the lake for a few hours, crossing a few bays and weaving between some little islands.
