Kayak 101

Grant has been talking about getting kayaks for a while now. A couple weeks back, he bought one kayak, and then about a week ago, he bought another. He had these grand kayaking visions in his mind, and needless to say, I did not share these visions.

All I can say is that I need to trust my husband and his visions a little more. We took the kayaks out for Memorial Day, and it was so much fun! I went not really thinking that I'd actually go out, but Grant can be pretty convincing. So I gave it a try, and I'm so glad I did! My parents are here visiting, and our friends Mike and Michelle came with us. It was a beautiful, warm day (despite this being "sunny California," it hasn't been very warm lately), and the beach that we went to at Terrenea is not a real hot spot, so there was hardly anyone there. Although, out of the few people that were there, we happened to run into sme old family friends of Grant's family. Unfortunately, I didn't get any pictures of them, but Grant did let them talk to his dad on the phone.

All in all, it was a fun day. Grant's visions of kayaking glory came true!

Enjoy some pictures. We look at the beautiful California scenery all the time from the top of the cliffs. Actually being in the water and looking up at the cliffs was a very cool experience. I wish I had taken the camera out on the water to capture it on film - maybe another time.


  1. Looks like fun!
    I hope you got my email about Saturday...we have to cancel :-(

  2. The few times I've been able to do that have been Amazing--that is a great idea! I am glad to see that your mom was holding the girls--I was actually looking for them in the first two pictures but then realized you probably would not take them in a kayak!

  3. Looks like you had a good time! That water looks lovely (especially with the awful heat we're already having in Memphis)!

  4. I am jealous! I have not had the opportunity to get my kayak out in the water this year. Part of living in the NW...rain, rain, rain.
