We spent a few days canoeing and kayaking this last week. Our oldest granddaughter is up from Georgia so we took her kayaking. This was the first time that she paddled a kayak by herself. She said she really likes it even though she got pretty upset when a spider ended up in her kayak.
When I told the owner of the lodge where we got the kayak about the spider he said, “At least it wasn’t a snake”. Apparently last summer a young girl took out one of the kayaks and a snake had crawled up in the front of the kayak while it was turned over on shore. She didn’t see it until she was out on the water and it came crawling up her lap.
