Kayak Lake Union in Seattle.
Seattle is such a beautiful place in the Summer. So many choices, so little time. In the Summer I like to occasionally take a spin on Lake Union by Kayak. You can rent them at various places around the lake. I like to stay along the shores and leave the middle to the bigger boats. You can view the downtown skyline from Lake Union, the houseboats from the movie "Sleepless in Seattle", the fishing boats from the television show "Most Dangerous Catch", and seaplanes taking off and landing. It's great being on the water, bouncing on the waves and feeling a part of it all.

If you want to try some serious kayaking Terry, go out to Body Boat Blade on Orcas Island.
I trained with the owners at a symposium in the midwest and they are top notch.

I did do some Kayaking in Canada here in 1974. This is Lake Quesnel back then.

Nice!

I paddled the Slate Islands in Ontario last month.
We had caribou come to visit us in our campsite.
