Kayaking – Our Style

After a couple of days of lousy weather and a not so promising weather forecast (partly cloudy, +15 degrees) we were surprised to say the least to be waking up to this.

And a quick dash down to the pier confirmed the positive news, yes, the weather was good!

My brother and my future sister-in-law are now holidaying here as well and when mum and dad offered to take care of the boys so that we could go out for a little kayaking tour we didn’t hesitate. “Let’s go!”

On a day like this there is nothing better than kayaking, basically no wind, lovely and warm and no one else around.

We kayaked slowly across the lake to a nearby “Panther Island” (name given by my late grandfather, only known by our family), at times paddling harder and at times letting the kayaks float in the water. The key is to close your eyes, lean back, lift your legs on the kayak and indulge in a bit of sunbathing at the same time.

A fellow boater in a small motor boat passed by, waved his hand and shouted “That seems like quite a relaxed way to travel!”. You can say that again.
