Many Reasons

The kayaks are right over there, so since we are all fond of water, we can just jump in and get started kayaking.  Get ready for some heart-stopping fun as the exhilaration of kayaking is like being on a roller coaster.  I love the serenity and peace that I get from bonding with the soothing beauty of nature.  The moment you step into your kayak, dip your paddle into the water, take that first stroke and push away from land, you will be overwhelmed with an indescribable feeling of floating freedom because you are leaving all of your cares, problems, and stresses on the shore.  Kayaking is also an excellent workout and it is a cool thing to do in the summer, because you are almost guaranteed to get soaked.  It is an outdoor activity that you can share with all of your friends, or if you are interested in something more intimate, then you can go alone with just your partner and try to create some long lasting, sensational and adventurous memories.

      1. I wrote a term paper in college about the watercraft structures of the North American Indians and ever since I have been fascinated with canoes, but I still have never been in one or a kayak either. It seems like fun and you really do not need to be all that impressed as research is so much easier now, than when I wrote that paper back in 1978, when you couldn’t copy and paste and then it had to be typed on a typewriter.

      2. All information was held in books before the internet, so you could not just sit on your ass at home, you had to go to this thing called the library. Then you needed quarters for some other gizmo called a copy machine. Those good old days where academic research was blessed with aggravation and obstacles on every page.

    1. They are both light weight boats which require you to paddle. The basic design difference is the way people sit in them, as when you are in a canoe you can sit on a seat or kneel, whereas kayakers are usually seated on the bottom of the boat with their legs stretched out in front of them.

    1. Thanks for your nice compliment. Some people are able to sell ice to an Inuit, but I would not be able to sell snowshoes to an Eskimo, or water to someone living in a desert, or even nuclear weapons to an Iranian.
