kayaking.

today we went kayaking on the northern end of canandaigua lake with some friends. i forget how close we are to nice bodies of water living here in rochester.

we rented some kayaks for 2 hours and leisurely strolled around the lake. we checked out the pier, the state's smallest park, Squaw Island and some old boathouses. i really liked the old boathouses on the pier. i later found out that they are actually historic, the first of which were built in 1848 and also that Squaw Island is like 11,000 years old!

we had a picnic in kershaw park which was fun, such a nice view of the lake.


You can check out the rest of the pics on my Kodak gallery page.

I wanted to get Tom a Kayak for his 50th b'day this year... Maybe next year. It's fun and so easy to maneuver, unlike a canoe.

I went with Sue and some of her friends to a park on Lake Ontario and actually went fishing for the first time this summer!

jon & tina - no TUNA in this lake. Canandaigua is beautiful, only about 15 miles long and very narrow. Come to think of it - we didn't see ANY fish.

tina - we had beer, water, smirnoff ice's (i tried the black cherry - yummy but too sweet for me) and kimmer brought MUDSLIDES. soooo good.

Mom - totally sh/get a KAYAK! Not a dbl tho. we want two single kayaks . they'll pay for themselves after about 10 trips of not-renting them! our friends have 2 and they'd make a great, outdoor double date!
