A Daddy-daughter camping trip just hasn't been working out with schedules this summer, but I knew they were really excited to go paddling in a place "less-bumpy" than the Bois-Brule River in Wisconsin. L needed a better association with the sport.
We rented a tandem kayak with a child-sized seat in the middle and set out to explore the lake near home. We saw geese, gulls, cormorants, and mergansers on the water and circled an island. After investigating a small inlet, we turned around and could see the spire of the LDS temple beyond the trees over the port bow. Look in the photo just above A's black cap.
We had a very pleasant time on the lake and hope to get out more often.
