Hiking together provides a wonderful time for us to talk, be together, and get fit. In my head, kayaking would provide the same. So far, I was wrong. Going on a Tandem Kayak was a challenge we paddle differently (don't judge we both first timer) . I sit at the front , while my husband is in the back trying to give me a lesson the right way to paddle. It rained that day we can't hear each other and I am too scared that I might flip over the kayak if I look back. This was not what I was expecting. It reminded me of toddlers who get together for playdates, yet they play next to each other and not with each other. We need to figure this out for future trips. But overall we had a great time in the end, my arms were quite sore; his not so much. This experience definitely left us wanting for more.
