Out on the Lake

After several failed attempts to get mom out on the lake in a kayak, this weekend, we succeeded! Previous excuses were: too hot...too cold...too windy... hmmmm, maybe she didn't really want to go? No way! She was just as excited about it as we were!

Mom and I were in kayaks, and my sister S. was in a little aluminum boat with a teeny tiny electric motor. The boat ramp is a little ways away from the kayak launch spot, so mom and I paddled over to the boat ramp to meet up with S. Here is mom getting the hang of paddling.

Once we met up with S., we tied mom's kayak to the aluminum boat so S. could tow mom to the far end of the lake were there is a beautiful creek that we paddle up and see all sorts of turtles and birds and stuff. We knew it would be much too far for mom to paddle all the way there and back, so that's why S. brought the aluminum boat. Tow service!
A good time was had by all!
