I guess the water is warm enough if anyone tips out, based on my own (mis) adventures in a kayak. at that time the lake was freezing, so a quick dash home for warm shower and dry clothes. Beep, what a summer experience for you and Gamma.

Hello, that is awesome, kudos to Beep. I love the shots, especially the one with the ducks. Have a happy day and new week ahead!

Beep is growing up fast!

Muffie said...

I can't believe how grown up Beep has become! My kids all kayak, but I wouldn't be able to get in/out of one.

Happy Week to you,

What a great skill to learn! Love the photo mosaic of your granddaughter. And don't you just love the Great Lakes. I feel so anchored to Lake Superior, as we live only 2 hours away.

I have never kayaked - I heard from more than a few that is DOES take skill and patience to master it without tipping. Good for her, she is something else, isn't she, Karen?

Glad you are so beautifully capturing their youth with your photo skills. ♥

It looks nice on the calm lake waters. I can see the rocks beneath - nice clean water!

Lisa Gordon said...

She surely has, and it looks like she's having so much fun.
These are great images of her, Karen!

Grandma has some ducks keeping an eye on her ( I guess that is you in the one picture?). ... Beep looks like a Master at kayaking! Fabulous ... She is a beautiful young woman of many talents and skills!

Stephanie said...

Looks like she has grown taller. Great images!

Judith @ Lavender Cottage said...

Nice to see a young person enjoying the outdoors. Grandma was lucky to have ducks pose with her picture.:-)
Thanks for linking to Mosaic Monday Karen.

Gail Dixon said...

Yay! My favorite activity. Hubby and I kayaked today as a matter of fact. We had a temporary break in the awful heat, so to the lake we went. Beep looks like a pro and so happy. Paddle on, my friends. :)

Pat @ Mille Fiori Favoriti said...

What fun--and a good work out--kayaking is! It must have been nice to do this activity with your granddaughter.

Liz said...

That looks like a lot of fun!

Lovely shots - looks like fun!

Hello Karen!:) Looks like you had a great day out with your grand daughter, lovey shots. Keep well!:)

TexWisGirl said...

how awesome! really fun!

Stewart M said...

Are the duck some form of accessory for the kayak?! If so, I want some.

Nice post.

Cheers - Stewart M - Melbourne

Phil Slade said...

That must be great fun, kayaking together with little friends alongside too.

Tamar SB said...

What a fun outing!

LV said...

No doubt this would be a fun thing, but I have a fear of water. Will stay on the bank and watch others. You both looked like you were enjoying it.
