Don't Want To Miss A Whimsical Thing? The Buns & I Can Send Posts Right To Your Inboxes

We've wanted to get kayaks for years now
and everything happily aligned just right a couple weeks back
that allowed us to find the perfect ones for us.
Up until then every time we looked, nothing ever worked out...nothing felt quite right.
This time not only was the decision on which kind of kayak seem super smooth, but also the timing
was perfect & the price just right AND we also got the custom roof rack we needed for the Jeep too.
Cherry on top type of stuff, ha ha.
We've been having sooo much fun & are out on the water every chance we get
and oh what adventures we are having together.
Since we can't travel anywhere this summer because of the new bunnies...
this fills our wanderlust beautifully.

We chose a hybrid kayak and we're so happy with that decision.
They are a cross between a touring (which is what you normally see)
and a white water rafting one...
which was perfect when our glass smooth lake suddenly turned into 2 foot swells the other night!
We can enjoy smooth water but also do class 3 rapids with these guys.  Wohoo, ha ha.
I am so excited to have a kayak finally.  I am now a Kayaker...ha ha.
I was super worried about my bad shoulder and my bad wrist BUT both seem to love the motion.
And those close to me know that being near water always heals & centers me...
so being right out there smack dab in the middle of it is even better....Wow.....

Well, at least these photos are of us using paddles...we originally tried to use plasic snow shovels, lots of grip with the water, but little control :-D !!! hahahaha
