This is going to be the best summer in Portland... because I now own kayaks. Last weekend, I went kayaking for the first time ever in a friend's borrowed kayaks and absolutely loved it. There's just something about being out on the water that is so peaceful, soothing and enjoyable. Kayaking is the perfect summer activity around Portland because there are so many great spots in the area to easily drop a kayak in the water and enjoy some amazing scenery; whether its on the Columbia River, the Willamette River, the Deschutes River or a nearby lake. So I decided that investing in kayaks would be a great idea because I was sure to get plenty of use out of them.
So a few days ago I bought a pair of kayaks on a whim. Today Megan and I took them out on their first excursion on the Willamette near Sellwood Park in SE Portland. It was the perfect afternoon. I have a feeling that this is what every weekend is going to look like from now on.
