Kayaking

Our family has discovered the peaceful joys of kayaking this summer. I prefer the calm lake of the morning or at dusk when the loons are calling. Just gliding through the water and seeing a whole different perspective of nature at its' best.

I came to your blog and I was serenaded by Enya! I love Enya! I have most of her CDs.

Nice kayak picture. Sure rub it in that I don't have one yet! My daughter went on a retreat last weekend and she went in a nice fat kayak and said it wasn't tippy at all.

I think I will just hang out here for a while and listen, if you don't mind.

Nice place, NME. Like Montana's wild places, the challenges is keeping them that way in the face of climate change, suburban sprawl/development, non-sustainable use of natural resources, etc.

But if enough of us make a stand for the places we know and love, we can do it.

Welcome to the world of kayaking. It is so much easier than having a motor boat and so much more peaceful! Looking forward to some fantastic nature photos from the water in Mich.

Wendy - you make me laugh! I'm an Enya nut too - glad you enjoyed it. Time to get a kayak - ours were pretty stable.

Ecorover - thank you for visiting. Montana is a place I hope to visit in the future. I understand what you mean about the challeges of development. There's a mining company that wants to drill on a pristine piece of land that was gifted by the Ausable River- and the forest service actually approved it! Luckily - the court blocked them.

Adventures in Nature - I am so hooked on kayaking and wish I would've taken it up sooner. It seems like it takes you deeper into nature.
