But, I wanted a kayak that would fit in my car with the hatch closed, and didn't weigh much. At seven and a half feet long, and only 25 pounds my new "Pelican" kayak fits the bill. And best of all, I got it on sale at Canadian Tire for only $209 !
Not suited to choppy water or the open ocean, my lil' kayak is super for just drifting through quiet places and seeing things close up.
|I "think| this is the shed |
Because it doesn't have a rudder I can float through masses of plants without getting hung up.
And it allows me to get close to the cutest of critters without startling them.
Sorry. I should have given you an excess-cuteness warning prior to that last photo. The lil' guy stood up and was flapping his stubby, non-existent wings with such confidence. Sooo friggin' cute !
Not long after, whilst sitting, minding my own business, I noticed movement coming toward me. I "think" it was a Muskrat. He wasn't even startled by my being there. It was as if he sees big BLUE logs every day and he paddled past unperturbed.
I spent a lot of time just enjoying the quiet; savouring the scent of the wetness and watching the way my paddle made ripples that curved the reflections of the reeds.
|Do you see writing in the reflection too ?|
|Is she balancing on an Alligator's head ?|
|Is that a monster walking by ?|
You're welcome to join me some time.
Heaven knows, I now have enough kayaks to start my own paddling club !
