My husband, Joe and I bought a Kayak last summer. It became an addiction. Great exercise, relaxing, and so much fun. Unfortuately, the winter came and the poor thing is sitting upsidedown in our backyard, just waiting to get wet again. Spring should be here real soon. For Florida, this has been a long nasty winter. This was taken from the kayak, summer 2010 on the Intra-Coastal waterway in Flagler. It's gorgeous here.

    I want to learn to kayak as my next big goal! Although I worry about gators and water moccasins....

Any advice on how to get started?

    How cool! My DH wants a Kayak so badly. But, I am afraid of them- alligators are bigger than those boats! Ever encountered any?! That does look like loads of fun! Add more videos of your adventures, that would be great!! Yes this winter and last was awful for FL standards! I think I get colder here than I did up north! I guess I am a wuss too! emoticon

    I loved seeing your video, it brought up many memories. I once kayaked alone from New Smyrna Beach to New Hampshire. I paddled the same strech in Flagler that you showed.

    I'm a wuss and really don't like the cold. I moved from New York to Florida for the darn sunshine, and I'm looking for it. emoticon

  I live in Wisconsin, and I have a friend that hasn't missed a month of canoeing in over 20 years. He will pick the warmest days of the month and find open water on a river and have fun.
