Bucket List Goal Complete: Kayaking

 

The original plan on my birthday was to try standup paddleboarding. The other plan was to lay in bed, take cough medicine and watch Dexter. Since the kid and the boyfriend were home and I wasn’t feeling tooooo bad, we decided to go to Put-in-Bay and possibly try kayaking.

It was a pretty good experience. I would do it again but I really love being on the water.

Hopefully, I can get my own kayak by next summer. Life jackets too. Safety first you guys! Don’t go out on the water without life jackets.

If I were going to do anything differently, I would

  1. Take water shoes. The rocks by the shore are slippery. Getting back on to the shore was the most difficult and hilarious thing about the trip.
  2. Remember suncreen.
  3. Bring a waterproof pouch for a phone. Something that floats too. My phone almost took a dive into the lake.
