Went out on the water today and had a great time. It's great exercise and it's just so relaxing.

Did you make someone smile today?

I can only kayak in warmer weather, but try to get out once a week when it is warm. We are packing our kayaks for the beach this summer in NC. There's a great bay to explore. Looking forward to it.

Have a fun paddle on the lake. We don't have nice lakes close by where I live, just rivers. My next paddle is in two weeks, it will be on the Little Spokane River. I've paddled it 3 other years, it is fast with many sharp turns. I make sure to try to stay in the middle because it is not very wide, and the brush and trees along side are dangerous. I found that out the first time I paddled it when I held onto a branch and the river took me under. It was cold.

Here in Kennewick, WA it is in 80's. Last week we went out on the Snake River for only about 5 miles. This week we will be on the Yakima River which is a faster and small river. We will only be going down stream on the Yakima.

Posting again even though I am away from the water at the moment. Am definitely thinking of kayaking. Put the bow of my boat photo on my iPad screen. Not quite like actually doing it, but a sweet reminder of what is to come.

Still not warm enough on our lake to kayak, but I thought about it yesterday when the temp hit 60 degrees. The water is icy though. Can't wait for that first day. Our team is quiet at this time of year but I hope people come back in Spring!

Lucky you! We had a Rolling pool session cancelled last week due to a big snow storm that dumped almost a foot of snow & cancelled all facilities, and temps have been staying right around or below freezing since then....Today, its about 24F with forecast flurries, so definitely no paddling here. On the other hand its been great for cross country skiing - did about 10 miles last Sunday and hoping to match that this weekend!

Tempted to go out today because the temp got up into the mid 60's, but then the wind picked up and it looked daunting. Keeping an eye up for a good day though. The time is coming...

Since we do lake paddling, we haven't gotten out much in January or February. Thinking of spring though and hoping to see everyone back at it when the sun comes back!

Guess I should have been more specific - these are 17 foot sea kayaks we're working with, not little white water boats. Big difference! I prefer flatwater kayaking myself and almost always paddle in a group which is why we practice rescues. It isn't required to know how to roll, but it's sure a lot of fun trying and pretty good exercise too. I'm pretty sore this morning, but yoga classes will help with that. Funny how a lot of kayakers get into yoga - the flexibility you gain from yoga have a really noticeable affect on paddling skills. I can strongly recommend it for any paddler!

DRIDEOUGH - impressive! Good for you for taking on and succeeding. I am doing much easier kayaking on a lake. No rapids. but who knows what the future will bring. Exciting to know you can do all that.

A little too cold here (Toronto area) to kayak without a dry suit, although it's going to be fairly warm today, about 15C. So a bunch of us got together and organised some pool sessions to work on rescue & rolling skills. I just learned to roll with a greenland stick in September at Ontario Greenland Camp, so it was a huge boost when I managed about 6 successful rolls last night! Hopefully the monthly sessions will allow me to keep working on them to get more consistent by the time next season rolls around (pun intended!)

Kayaked yesterday...60 degrees on our Virginia lake. Nice. I did fall in when getting in trying to keep my feet dry! It was funny and chilly. Then I changed clothes and started all over again with my water sandals on. Less nervous about keeping dry, getting in off the dock was easy! Sometimes I gotta learn things the hard way. My husband is still laughing!!

I did 3 1/2 hours paddling the Annisquam River in Gloucester Mass for a distance of 6.1 miles. It was a little crazy with all the power boats on a hot Saturday, but it was still fun and a great work-out.
