I'd Rather Be... Kayaking?

I caved! Handy has wanted a Kayak for YEARS, and I finally said, "Oh, okay. Fine." And then what came out of my mouth next surprised both of us...

"But I want one too."

Say wha???

Here's what mine looks like! The Tarpon 100 in Lime :) And I have a pink and black life jacket!

Handy's is, of course, a little longer and camo colored.

We've been trying to go every other day or so at the lake down the street. It's quite the workout! At first I wasn't sure I could handle it, but it's not nearly as difficult (or as dangerous) as I'd thought. It's actually a little bit fun. THERE. I said it. My arms are getting stronger! My shoulders and abs are sore! It's a nice feeling.

It's peaceful too. A quiet chance to brainstorm--I stash a notebook in the cooler in case I'm suddenly struck with an idea that I have to write down.

What about you? Doing any fun outdoor activities now that the weather is warming? Do you find it a good time to brainstorm too?


  1. I love kayaking! Best place I ever did it was on Kalekeau Bay in Hawaii. Enjoy your new hobby! :)

  2. That looks like a ton of fun. I love to go hiking it is so nice to get out after the long winter.

  3. Haha! Glad you decided to embrace the fun. The only "fun" I've had this week is weeding. bleh. But in the not-so-distant future, I plan on swimming, lots of swimming.

  4. We went hiking this weekend. I would love to Kayak though :)

  5. Kayaking sounds awesome, I can see that being a great mix of good for the body and good for the brain.
