Paddled my way across my first big lake. I went from the boathouse to the little cove almost directly across. It was a little scary when the first ski-doo flew by, but my kayak did pretty good when I faced it into the wake.
Got a bit worried when I suddenly noticed there was a downed tree just under the water not 20 feet from the buoy shown in the pic. I'm still very much afraid of the water...especially when I know there's something below me that I can't see. I was suddenly aware that I was in something that could possibly pop, and hightailed it out of there lol.
Seems a bit silly to have to pay $6 to put my inflatable in the water, though. I think I'll be getting the Discover Pass so I can get more value for the buck. =)
