How could we not?

How could we not use our new kayak the first chance we got? It proved to be a very profitable evening as I became the paddler, negotiating us between buoys & shorelines, boats & piers. We cruised around Mission Bay, near Sea World, where we saw penguins and enthusiastic tourists riding the skytram overhead that wanted to see what the heck we were doing. I tried to oblige each passenger by waving while paddling and Sean was more than happy to hold up his trophy for the skytram passengers that yelled, "Hey Canoe-eeey!" 10 fish were caught, in all, but 9 released back to their home. The one we kept: a spotty bass, I'm told. Surely, there will be many more to come as we were able to appreciate the quietness of a warm summer evening in the middle of a big city.

Sounds like fun!!! :) Can't wait to take a ride...I may have to pass though until after this nice round belly produces it's adorable little boy, otherwise I might sink the boat! He,he! But I will gladly watch and take pictures as everyone else takes their turn!!! :) Oh, did you eat the Bass?

Sean & I both fit, so you would be just fine, Kim!
The bass is in the fridge waiting for Sean to fillet it!

So...how's your back? :)
Glad you had fun. I hope you will get your new kayak soon, then Sean will be jealous and want one just like yours :)
Had fun today! Thanks

I noticed you said "I became the paddler".

Sweet heart you'll forever be my "trolling motor" until Aaron points me to a new "Thruster".

Gentlemen take note: If you buy her her own Kayak, how is she going to paddle you around in yours?... Double wammy; I loose my "trolling motor" and my wallets lighter. dohh
