Kayaking…and…geocaching! Two of my favorite things. I decided it was my turn to start hiding some “yak” caches at Harris Lake. If nothing else, I’d at least have more excuses for making trips to the lake with my kayak. Since there are a bunch of them (7), I put them all on a different page.

Just adding a short video to watch when I can’t be on the water. It might not be the most pristine shoreline but it’s better than sitting behind a desk. It’s the area that was affected by a strong tornado which passed through in 2011 (caused major damage in nearby Sanford). Many of the trees ended up in the water. I’m sure that makes the local fishermen very happy.
Yay!! I got my new kayak and I am so excited. I’ve had a kayak for a couple of years now (check out my “Hobbies” page). Anyway, the old one is considered a touring boat. That means it’s long and narrow and used for longer trips- usually cuts through the water a little easier. On the other hand, it’s hard to carry and not as stable as some of the wider boats. After a suggestion from my Dad (he made it over and over), I decided to sell the old one and buy a new one.
I researched for a crazy amount of time. I’m so particular when I buy something that is expensive. I also want to find the one I’ll be happiest with once I’ve made the purchase. First, I checked out the Old Town Vapor. Rented it, tested it out…thought I was convinced to go with that model. Then, after a trip to REI, I was introduced to the Perception Prodigy. Love at first sight. No hesitation. I ordered it online and waited with anticipation. It finally came in and I took it out for it’s maiden voyage on 7/7/11. It was everything I had hoped it would be. You can expect me to post lots of pictures from future trips.
