Takin' A Crack At the Kayak

me, Ruth, and Rebecca

 For the fourth time this year, I was able to get the kayak out on the lake.  My guess is that it will be the last time this year ,with the weather getting colder.  The sky was overcast and the temps were just right for 4-hours kayaking on the lake in Wakonda, MO.

my kayak beached on the island

At one point, a big ole' fish tried to take me out.  There I was minding my own business when, all of a sudden, I felt several continuous thuds hit the side of my kayak.  A fish was trying to wage war!  He finally gave himself a concussion and swam away.  Bout pooped myself a little.

All in all, it was a good day with good friends.

It looks like a fun day. I haven't been kayaking in awhile.

4 hours? 2 is usually my tops on kayaking. Sounds like you had a great time with it this year.

It does look like fun. I've only canoed before.

My sister in law goes out with the gators. No way I'm that brave. ;) 4 hours would have killed me too, by the way. :)

Glad you got out and had a good time.
