Like No Other

Today was kayaking, but not like what we usually do (that is, going from point A to B and back again). We pitched a tent, put up some tables and camping chairs, spread out some picnic blankets, and knocked about Spa Creek.

There were nine of us and, while most of us had Hobies, enough variety that we could try other kayaks too. The initial plan was even to get some friends who didn't own kayaks to come out and try ours and have some fun. All of them cancelled on us, though.

But it really was a great way to spend a day. We all had a picnic lunch and even played a few games. It was very different than how we usually kayak. And great fun!

It was also very hot. My mother and I were worn out sooner than everyone else and retreated to the comfort of her air-conditioned home to get some energy back before I drove back to VA. Still, a fun day!
