My husband has been researching kayaks and canoes for some time as we often see lovely rivers and lakes when we travel round in our caravan or to orienteering events. Last weekend we found just the one at a Geelong boat shop. It's a nice stable two person one and the only challenge is to learn to paddle with togetherness ... So now when we see inviting patches of water, in we go!
While I wasn't keen, the boys didn't let the cold and rain stop them as they test paddled in the Bay off Williamstown and the Maribyrnong River at Flemington. The river water was pretty brown and not so pleasant but the Bay was nice apparently.
