Our visit to Deep Cove had it’s grand finale tonight with an absolutely beautiful kayak trip in the area.
We were so lucky to get to borrow Sarah and Brian’s double kayak for the evening, while our friend C.D. who went to school with Kyler in Edmonton and now lives in Vancouver, borrowed Ang’s kayak. Erik, Kyler’s cousin manned it out there on a stand up paddle board! We got out around 5:30 pm and while we were paddling by one stunning, seaside house, surrounded by gorgeous nature, after another we forgot all about time and place. Quicker than we realized it, the sun was setting and as it really was getting dark we pulled the kayak out of the water. We took advantage of every minute of daylight. It was such a wonderful night!
I can see why people get into kayaking. It is such a natural movement. It feels as if you’re one with the water. I love looking at how the kayak carefully cuts its way through the water creating little wakes as it goes. I love looking to the side as the paddle pierces through the surface of the water and makes a tornado on its way back. I might not be the most efficient paddler, as I am obviously quite busy watching my surroundings, but I am loving every minute of it.
