I realized today that after I came back from Florida 2 months ago I haven’t done even one thing by any body of water (except one bath last week, if that counts??). I can’t blame it completely on COVID-19, to be honest. But the time came to break this bad trend in my life. Water fun came in the form of kayaking on Percy Priest Lake. Check out the path of the paddling below… in total it was around 8,800 meters (roughly 5.5 miles).
Being on the water was so fun, especially knowing there were no alligators or sharks. We did see a snake in the water, though. Other “more safe” creatures we saw were birds, turtles, minnows, frogs, lizards, and caterpillars.
I was craving something like this trip and it turned out to be exactly what I needed! We also did a bit of hiking on Bear Island (the island seen in the middle picture above), which deserves its own post so be on the lookout for that one in the coming days. This year has been pretty weird, right? But I’m hoping I can kayak (and hike) with some regularity! This kayak adventure was a good start to a better trend 🙂
