On Sunday, we took our kayaks out for an evening on nearby Loch Garry. What a beautiful outing!
After we launched our kayaks, we paddled through a channel lined with lily pads and bullrushes.
And a beaver lodge!
I have always loved lily pad flowers!
There were some interesting cloud formations on Sunday.
Here comes my favourite kayaking partner!
Being out on the water is one of my favourite things in life. Growing up, we had a motorboat in Port Severn, on Georgian Bay. We would do the two-hour drive (one way) on most summer weekends. But I like kayaking even more than being in a large boat. You are so close to the water, and it's so peaceful.
Gordon got ahead of me because I spent so much time floating around, taking photos.
This is his gold-medallist Olympian pose.
"Loon" refers to the boat, not the man, although we did hear a loon calling right after we launched our boats.
You can get really close in two kayaks.
The sunset was gorgeous and the water was totally flat as we kayaked back in.
I am always happy in a kayak. It doesn't matter what kind of mood I was in when we left the house; everything drains away the minute I hit the water.
We are lucky to have this lovely little lake just ten minutes from our house.
And I brought my favourite cushion...
"Hand over the chocolate and no one will get hurt!"
I have a couple of stickers on my boat...
Gordon and I used to be in the Naval Reserve. This is the smallest vessel I've served on! ;)
We eventually had to come home. I am proud to say that I have learned how to back up our new trailer and managed to park it without hitting anything. And it only took about 15 steps! :)
There is a trail here managed by the Friends of Glengarry Trails.
This is a lot easier than putting them on top of our car, which is what we did until this year!
It was tough to go home.
