Girl Power

Today after I got off work, Emma, Mom, Dad, and I went to Morgan Lake above La Grande.  Dad took a book, a canopy for shade, and a comfy chair.  Emma, Mom, and I took our kayaks.  Mom has had hers for several years, but Emma and I just received our as gifts this last year.  We had a great time, but Emma and I found out just how much arm power it takes to maneuver the kayaks around, especially  in windy weather.  Our arms got a great workout!

Since it was my first time on my kayak, I didn’t take my camera out with me, and I really wish I would have.  One of the great things about these kayaks is that we can get really really close to nature and the animals & birds that we normally wouldn’t be able to get close to.  While we were out in the middle of the lake, Mom and I watched a pair of osprey fishing, and then we got to watch one of the osprey “fighting” with a golden eagle.  It was awesome!

Now that I’ve been out in my kayak, I can’t wait to get out in it again, we had such a great time!
