Kayak adventure

Jen and I had our first kayak adventure.  We went out on the Waccamaw River with friends in their kayaks.  Our friends Greg and Annie own kayaks and actually do some tours and rentals for anyone interested.  We put into the river just underneath the old Conway bridge and we went north on the river just a little ways up past the train trestle.  From there we floated back downstream a ways and went up into Kingston Lake.

We had a great time and I can’t tell you how relaxing it was to be on the water.  I was the first to flip my kayak.  To make a long story short, another boat was approaching  in a narrow section of the lake and I was trying to get out of his way.  I lost my balance and over I went.  The boater helped me out of the water and back into a drained kayak.  Fortunately, I didn’t lose anything either.

Here are some photos from the day…
