Last weekend, Adam and I were able to escape for a few hours to go kayaking. We rented kayaks, using a Living Social deal I purchased. It's funny- until I saw that coupon, it never occurred to me that we could just rent kayaks. We always talk about buying a couple of sea kayaks when we return to the northwest. I find it to be one of the most enjoyable activities. There is something about floating out on the water that immediately puts me at ease. It's also a great arm and back workout, so that's a bonus! We rented the boats at a place that's conveniently located right on the Mohawk River. We just had to walk them across the street and put them in the water. There was not much activity on the river that day, so it felt like Adam and I had it to ourselves (well, aside from some baby ducks, following their mama). It was just a perfect afternoon.
