The first time we went kayaking was through Groupon where we got half-price tickets to a Full-Moon Paddle on Lake Maitland. It was a great experience. We discovered that we love this sport, even more than canoeing. Kayaks are easier to maneuver.
I planned for us to go to New Smyrna Beach and kayak on the Inter-Coastal Waterway from J.B.’s Fish Camp. The bonus is this time of year the manatees like to gather at a cove only a 15 minutes paddle away.
Here are some more photos of our day. I wish I could have shared with you the videos of the manatees. They swam right next to our kayak. Called “Gentle Giants,” they swim slowly in the shallow waters because they, like whales and porpoises, need air to survive.
I also told Tom it was to be our intention to say “K” to whatever we asked of each other all day, sort of like, “As you wish”, from the Princess Bride.
He failed to say “K” when I suggested Karaoke. I guess I found his limit! 😂
It was a fun date and one I’m sure we’ll do again!
