Kayaking, check!

I can officially check kayaking off my 2013 list! And don’t worry, I took pictures to prove it because even my own mother wouldn’t believe that I went kayaking after a long work day, an eye appointment and a 45 minute commute back to Dallas without a little proof.

In the five plus years I’ve lived in Dallas, kayaking marked my first trip to White Rock Lake. We arrived a few minutes late, but still in time to use our free one hour rental. Side note: I love almost anything that’s free.

Terrified, anxiety levels off the charts, I reluctantly got in the back of the kayak. Naturally, I was freaking out. Scared I was going to flip the kayak over before we hit the water. Scared I was going to sink the kayak. Scared I was going to drop my paddle [which I actually almost did]. Scared I was going to get sea sick [yes, really].

I was scared of everything, but I am happy to say that my fear didn’t last as long in this adventure as it did in my last. Once the kayak was safely in the water I was able to calm down.

As Ingrid and I paddled to the other side of the lake, we started to hear music.

Silently sitting in the kayak, listening to the faint background of country and blues [check out Prophets and Outlaws] was the perfect way to spend my Friday night.

I guess sometimes what you really need after a long work week is a little peace and quiet, and maybe a little nature.
