Today was another picture perfect day in paradise.
A few months back I decided to be braver than I have been in the past. I am a strong swimmer but have never done kayaking until last week.
As you can tell I was the pack mule on this trip. It wasn’t a problem-I’m just counting on a few extra kudos from you for being brave AND hard-working. How am I doing?
Nothing but open water ahead. We had a destination in mind. A small current but nothing we future Olympians couldn’t handle. The guy on the left is a different hooligan than our tour guide from last week.
We made it to land, beached the kayaks and did a short exploration of Gilligan’s Island. Sadly, we didn’t see the Professor, the Skipper or any other crew members.
We did, however, find a fire ring with smoldering embers and a tree swing.
Evidence of life.
This was beautiful but scary.
It was a narrow passage, there was a kayaker coming towards us and I was a little freaked about what might be above us or on either side of us. I felt every bit as tense as I appeared but all was well.
My purpose in sharing these photos and comments is not to make you jealous.
I want to encourage you to try something new-maybe something you’ve been afraid to tackle. If you’re physically able and your weather permits get outside and do something. I don’t think you’ll regret it.
Who knows? You might find the crew of Gilligan’s Island in YOUR area.
