One of my favorite things to do to “get away” from the stresses and demands of daily life is to kayak. There is something so peaceful & calming about being out in the middle of a lake jut floating. Or, paddling along a river exploring the surroundings from a different perspective. I love watching the little critters jump or swim by. I love when the lily pads are in bloom, and also when the leaves begin to change color. The Midwest in my opinion has some of the most beautiful places to paddle.
Until next summer, kayaks. I will keep daydreaming of our adventures in between studying for my midterms :)
