K is for Kayaking

          We had an awesome day today!  As you know from yesterday Dad and I were planning on taking Kay and Mo kayaking.  It was great!!  We rented kayaks from Tropical Kayaks in Palm Coast.  They launch the kayaks from there too.  It's $20 for 2 hours for a single kayak, $40 for 2 hours for a double kayak.  The owner is really relaxed and nice.  I definitely plan on taking the girls there again.

          I've outlined our route in pink.  We decided to do a really simple trip.  The only person with us that had been in a boat that you paddle before is Dad.  He was in one kayak with Kay and I was in the other with Mo.  I was so proud of Mo.  She's small and she paddled so hard.  She even did all the work a few times while I sat back and took some pictures.  We decided to stay away from the area with a lot of boat traffic.  We were told that we could see dolphin and manatee, or even a monkey that lives in the area but all we saw were 6 jumping fish in the 90 minutes we were out.
          The owner told me that at the end of my kayak rental I could test out a stand up paddleboard.  Unfortunately I completely forgot about it until I was already changed.  She told me I could come in early on a Sunday and test it out.  I'm going back next Sunday to test one out.  I'm SUPER excited!

And now I leave you with a few pictures from our adventure
