Kayaking Season Begins!

Kayaking Season Begins!

Last Saturday Gene and I hit the water again, and it was only FEBRUARY, y’all!  What what?!?  The weather here in Coastal Georgia is always…interesting.  But if February wants to hand us temps around 80, we’re going kayaking!

We paddled at George L. Smith State Park last summer and LOVED it!  I nearly had a heat stroke, but I also got some great photos!  You can see those here.  This time the pond looked a lot different because it’s winter (in name only).

I’ll let the pictures do most of the talking!

Both the cypress and tupelo trees are deciduous, so they’re looking pretty bare right now. Give them a few weeks and they’ll look totally different!

The tannic acid from the cypress trees turns the water into a mirror! A couple of times I turned a corner and had a moment of vertigo! For a second or two my brain couldn’t figure out which way was up!

 

We sure did have a good time, and we’re looking forward to getting back out there before the heat gets dangerous!

Do YOU like to kayak?  Do cypress trees (or swamps) creep you out?!?  What are YOUR favorite state parks?  Leave me a comment, and let’s chat!

WATCHING:  Face Off on the SyFy channel.  I’ve watched several seasons of this show and really enjoy it!  Each week the artists have different movie makeup challenges; they create everything from aliens to monsters to snow queens!

 

EATING:  Strawberries!  They’re in season, and I’m a happy girl.  I buy them year ’round, but I like the prices this time of year!

 

SAYING:  “Where’s the sunscreen?” and “When are we going camping?”  We’re pushing 90 degrees today, y’all!  We have to get out there and have some fun before the REAL heat arrives!

POSTING:  This photo from our recent paddle at George L. Smith State Park near Metter, Georgia.  I asked my sweet man to pretty please snag a few pictures of me while we were on the water.  He did well!!!  I rushed this baby straight to Instagram where my outdoor peeps showed it a little love!  (I’m @outandback.live if you’d like to follow me!)   HERE are more photos from this paddle!
