For a long time we have enjoyed the out doors. Camping, biking, walking, hiking, photography, site seeing. Pretty much anything. For some reason we really wanted to be on the water and a kayak seemed to be the best and most affordable way for us to do that.
So Kathy found this Groupon for a kayak tour of Galveston Bay. Beach Town Tours-here is their link http://www.beachtowntours.com/index.php/kayak-tours
We went and we loved it. We asked for a tandem and our youngest son even went with us. We paddled from the north side of Galveston Island across the bay to Deer Island and back. Beautiful weather. And our guide was wonderful. He too is a teacher!
We love kayaking! And when you kayak you are sitting down so close to the water. We like the time that we spend together and the feeling of gliding silently through the water.
After some discussions and research we chose to get a tandem kayak. I’ll talk more later on how we made that selection. But we have really enjoyed our kayak. And we have put many miles and hours in paddling Lake Somerville, Lake Woodlands and the Galveston Bay.
