We needed a good paddlin’

It seems like we are constantly figuring out new things about ourselves as we explore this beautiful country. One of the things we have learned recently is how much we enjoy kayaking/canoeing together and with friends.
We have always known that it is something we enjoy but after having 3 outings in the last month, we have realized how much we enjoy it.kayak4

So when our friends Tim and Amanda arrived at our campground here in Maine with their Kayaks, we were itching to get out again.kayak3

We packed a picnic lunch and enjoyed a Saturday afternoon on Long Pond in Acadia National Park.  It was a bit cloudy and cool which meant we had the lake almost to ourselves.  We rented a tandem kayak right across the street from the beach and off we went.kayak2

We paddled almost 6 miles and stopped on our own little rock for lunch.  What a great way to spend 3 hours.

Tim even got in some rehab on his injured foot by jumping out and swimming for the last half mile.  Well…most of the half mile…  kayak5I think Amanda may have gotten the best work out of all of us!

I think I see inflatable or foldable kayaks in our future.    If only we can figure out where to put them!kayak1
