How did that happen? It’s the last month of summer and this past Friday I got my kayak (The Banana Boat) out for the first time.
I’ll admit I was apprehensive. Would I be able to load it on the SUV by myself? Was it safe for me to be kayaking by myself? Would the new life jacket be more comfortable? I was full of doubts and questions. But, Friday morning the answer to the first question was yes, I could load it. Tied down I set out to find Deer Creek Conservation Area, a place I had never been to but heard much about. Ontario roads being what they are, I got lost on my way there as the signage in this province is so poor. When I was sure I had gone too far I kept going and by accident there it was.
Unloading was trickier than the loading but with The Banana Boat in the water and floating I set out for a couple of peaceful hours floating and paddling around Deer Creek. Of course, I don’t go to very many places without my camera. The following are some of the highlights of the scenery that day.
In the next month or two I need to make up for lost time and get “the banana boat” out as much as possible, so stay tuned for more adventures and photos.
