Vacation Paddling!

We have been paddling every day since Saturday and it is wonderful getting out again and I am loving the fact that I can paddle longer in my new kayak. I admit, I can paddle easier but I also go longer so it is wiping me out each day, but Bill helps out with cooking and I can rest at night.

Yesterday we went to Narrow River which leads to Narragansett beach. It is a wonderful place to paddle along the waterway and the beach end that we land on, is basically a quiet end, only boaters use it, so a nice spot to sit and relax.

After we enjoyed the ocean, we headed back into the cove and paddled around before heading back. We ended up doing 6.5 miles yesterday.

This area has a lot of egrets and they are used to people paddling in the area.

And... this is the perfect way to end the day!

Today we went to Ninigret park. It is a large salt water pond that leads out to the ocean.
We headed right for the ocean, going up the waterway to the breakers that lead out to the ocean.

This was where we landed our boats, a nice quiet spot to sit and enjoy a rest.

And this is the view behind us, beautiful wild roses.

We walked over the dunes and enjoyed some time in the cool ocean breezes, perfect way to spend the day. We did 5.5 miles today, plus some beach walking, so I think that was enough for one day;) Friday is our actual anniversary but it is fun celebrating it all week long, doing what we both love.

Oh my goodness, now that's the life. You'll have to recover from your vacation. I think it's wonderful that you and your hubby kayak together.
Happy anniversary!

Hi Deborah :)
I've enjoyed reading your blog through Google & it's going away soon. How can I continue to 'read you'? I haven't a blog of my own & have signed up via email for many of my favorite blogs.
