Did I ever tell you about the time we went kayaking? No? Well, here you go.
Ashley’s parents were looking for a fun family activity and came across kayaking as an option. Fortunately, Ashley and I (and Alex) were on a cruise one time with her parents and we went kayaking in Key West…and it was hilarious. Ashley and I shared a two-seater, as did Ashley’s parents…and they just couldn’t seem to get on the same page with their paddling…aka, they kept hitting things. Like I said, hilarious.
So, naturally, we agreed to go again. This time, it was the whole gang: Ashley’s parents, Lizzie, Doug, Alex, Janice (his girlfriend), Ashley and I.
We went out to Bayou St. John on this particular Saturday morning, signed the appropriate paperwork, and dove in (figuratively).
Ashley and I had tried to get a two-seater again, but I think that was lost in the communication with our guides. Ultimately, it worked out for the best, though, because the last time, Ashley gave up and I was having to do double the work.
Life jackets were optional. See here as Ashley opts in.
Then shows us how to get started.
And is an old pro in no-time.
But, she was going so fast that she got some nasty blisters along the way.
We did have a guide with us the whole time, kind of explaining some historical and/or interesting things as we passed them. I do remember it being interesting, but I can’t remember any specifics. Here is me not soaking in any of the information.
It was a beautiful day, and I’m glad we went in the morning, because it started getting pretty warm as we were wrapping up.
