Paddling to Pecks
I always find the hardest part of the trip to be getting into the kayak. Using a kayak when it's on a beach is really easy. Getting into a kayak from a dock is another story. It always makes me anxious. You have to go down the ladder, stand in the tippy kayak and then plop your tush into the seat. I hate it. The photo above shows me smiling in relief because I made it into the kayak without tipping it over and falling into the canal. Once I'm in, paddling is no big deal. This kayak belongs to another Islands resident who wanted to paddle one way rather than round trip. That worked for me so I took her boat to Pecks and she paddled it back.
Soon there were even more of us ready to start out.
