Am I ready to tackle wild water sports?
Subsequently, it came as a bit of a surprise to hear myself agreeing to go kayaking in the middle of a camping trip to Algonquin Park. Influenced no doubt by the legendary images of paddling on the park’s famous lakes, I felt the pressure of history upon my shoulders, not wanting to miss out on a great Canadian tradition.
After an hour, my arms and shoulders were getting a little sore. Even gentle kayaking is a good workout! I can’t believe it took me so long to try kayaking for the first time. While I didn’t fall in love with it, I did enjoy it quite a bit and I wouldn’t refuse another chance to kayak again at the next camping trip – that’s an anti-adventure win by any standard!
As always, I welcome and encourage your comments. Have you ever tried kayaking?
