not all kayaks are alike???!

i never realized how different kayaks can be??! you have seen pics of our kayaks. these you see seem to sit more on top of the water, they are more different to steer, & not as smooth. we didn't bring our own paddles so that was a real differences too. who knew it could be so different. we did bring our own life jackets and hats.

just so you know for future reference NOT ALL KAYAKS are equal. 

i think the hubby liked it. me - major learning curve. i did the best i could. & considering all the great pics i took, in my most humble opinion, it could have gone a whole lot worse. ha. ha!!! pics taken Sept. 28th, 2014. Beth ( :


The more reason to go kayaking, right? :-)

Gorgeous pictures, Beth. You two are so lucky to visit these beautiful places and thanks for sharing with us!
I'm still rooting for equal rights for kayaks.
Yes, you certainly got beautiful pictures!

I would be hanging on for dear life, not taking pictures. Good job!

if you didn't capsize, i'd say you did well. :)
I have never been in a kayak. Did have a canoe at one time.

I could imagine how hard it would be get the kayaks to do your bidding. Nice shots regardless!

i love that last shot of the water.. since i don't fly or float, the kayak will be just to look at and they are pretty

We just purchase a new pair of Kayaks that have yet to be tried out. I am indeed bit afraid of the learning curve next season.
Sure will be fun though...maybe you'll paddle right on by me on one of these beautiful Virginia rivers.

You must have done great, kayaking and taking photos.. I have not tried kayaking! Wishing you a happy week!

I hadn't thought about the different kinds of kayaks. I would say you did a great job of getting photos while paddling your kayak.
Happy Kayaking!!!! I'm sure that you and hubby have a great time. I don't know much about the different types of Kayaks ---but I do know that some people like to kayak on smooth water --and others like the rough water...

Happy Thanksgiving. Great photos, Beth.

You do have fun adventures. If and I repeat "if" I were to try kayaking it would be on a calm lake and for sure I'd be wearing a life jacket since I can't swim.

Dells Mill, Augusta, Wisconsin

"Dells Mill", in Augusta, Wisconsin ...was a huge learning experience. Gus Clark, the museum guide was so great.

i just went to the website, to share the link with you guys and i see that Gus did pass away. i am trying to check my notes to see when we were there. we were trying to recall the day. my parents anniversary is August 24th. apparently the day he past away. (he was telling us that he did have some health issues, no details, but i thought he looked ok?) he was so cool. he was very descriptive and so fun to listen too. the mill had been in his family for years. he was just like a real history book. such a loss. (i just checked my notes we were there Thurs. 8/21) i hope he knew we enjoyed our visit. we told him so. thanked him for his time & explained we love seeing the odd, the different & the usual places throughout the US.

mills are becoming far and few. sad but true. ) :
i wonder who will take over the mill? he was having issues with the folks who wanted t…

Pyramid Lake Resort

We had dinner at "Pyramid Lake Resort". We were camping at the Wapiti campground within Jasper National Park. We were so happy to find the restaurant ...some times we just head thinking we want to find the 1st great looking place to try out. & thankfully this was a great pick, check out these views we got to see while eating this fabulous meal. This meal was one of the best meals we had all of our whole Canadian trip. It was a amazing!! 1. appetizer, 2. I had halibut, 3. hubby had elk, and 4. was the pyramid chocolate yummyness. it was delicious!! Are you now hungry? Beth ( :
