Yak expeditions

My neighbor Ron and I took our kayaks to the link that connects Cayuga Lake to the Erie Canal.  It’s near a bird refuge and we paddled around there for an hour and a half.

Then he had to get back to have dinner with some neighbors and I took my kayak alone for half an hour on seneca lake which had pretty lively waves due to the wind.  It was challenging and sometimes the waves broke into the boat, but it was fun all the same.

I was pleased to see that the straps I’d bought yesterday worked well and transporting both boats was successful after we worked out some of the kinks.  It’s neat to have a rack and be able to drive these boats to other places for exploring.  You know, once you pay the initial $$, kayaking is actually a pretty inexpensive hobby…

  1. Sounds like a really good time to me. Maybe we should plan a trip west in early Oct for a expedition on my lake.
