Mark and I went on our first kayaking trip at a lake very near our home. Yall, it was FUN!! I have a bit of learning to do as you are not supposed to paddle with your arms and shoulders (as I was doing), but with your core muscles. And mine are uber weak. So, I'll be giving that a little try next time. We did a round trip of about 6 miles. The lake was absolutely FULL of pollen. This is going to be a fun was to get some exercise. Beats running on a treadmill.
