Happy Friday folks!! I’ll be honest, today is just a normal day for me, because yesterday I played in a kayak all day!
We rented the kayaks from Cycle Path Paddle in Crosby, and they brought the kayaks to the Pennington water access for us. We got on the water at 10 am, and paddled through multiple lakes taking breaks to swim. Eventually we paddled to a sandy shore and pulled in for our packed lunch. Throughout the morning I had a lot of trouble with paddling in a straight line and keeping up with my friends. We laughed and blamed “operator error” but decided to switch up who was in which kayak to see if it truly was an issue. It took a few minutes to realize there really was something wrong with the kayak, it back seemed to be weighted as it would consistently veer the right no matter how you paddled.
We called Cycle Path Paddle and they agreed to meet us back at the launch site and switch us for a different kayak. I’m pretty sure they thought we were crazy, but there was no extra charge for the change and they were very nice about it!
We finished up our day with a long swim break, letting minnows and sunnys nibble on our feet, and laughing a lot. We had perfect weather and it was a wonderful way to soak up the sun and what is starting to be the end of summer.
Do you have a good rental place near you? Have you ever experienced operator error?
