Kayaking on Melton Hill Lake

Monday, July 20, 2015
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.

 Going under the tunnel was a new experience.
After the rain we finally enjoy the experience and the views 
We typically work well together, until we are put in a two sitter kayak. (ha ha)

  1. hahah, I hear you!!! It's fun though, but a lot of problem solving skills. they say, two persons may talk for years and yet not know each other, but put them in an activity and in a few hours they learn a lot from each other, and kayaking is one of those activities that you'll learn a lot from each other.

  9. christania’s “Copenhagen Rent Bike” bikes are rolling across the city. The system, less than a year old, is funded by christania’s municipal government. It is currently only in one of christania’s 22 administrative districts. Although a 2nd generation system, there are 12 “Houses” in this district, each with around 40 bikes. The yearly subscription cost is the equivalent of $2 US, and allows the use of a bike for up to four hours at a time. In less than a year, there have been 6,000 subscriptions sold. There are larger 3rd generation systems in the world, which do not have a subscription to bike ratio as big as that.
