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 ( :

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!

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!
George said…
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.
Hugs,
Betsy

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.

Briery Creek Lake, Farmville, Virginia

Taking a break from our trips, to talk about a recent kayaking trip. We have had so much rain here in Virginia in the month of May. It has been so green. The funny thing is how the weather folks keep saying we are in a drought??! WHAT??! So on Monday May 9th, we took a day trip to "Briery Creek Lake", Farmville, VA. At this area there was a sign about "Trophy Largemouth Bass", so if you are fan, you might wanna check out. We are not fisherpeople, just love the kayaking experience. It was a gorgeous day! I was trying to get the picture of the osprey, the water was thinking otherwise, but I did ok... in the video below you will hear birdies, I did try to capture the osprey, but the silly bird stopped singing, it was such an interesting sound. chirp? tweet? Why does nature not working me with me, please?


Please enjoy this vlog of that day. Thanks, for stopping by, hope you enjoy the trip. Beth ( ;

Sculptures at Hershey Gardens

Such amazing sculptures there at "Hershey Gardens" ... let's check them out. As I say there are so many areas to walk around there at the gardens ...gorgeous trees to stand under if you are dealing with lots of sun. Great shades. Herb gardens, a perfect place for great visit no matter the season. So fun!! I think my favorite will be the butterfly girl ...she just looks so happy and free. 2nd fave is the girl smelling the rose. Thank you for stopping by. Hope you are well today. Take care.
