I had a wonderful extended weekend Minnesota camping trip with him and our niece, Christina as well as a couple visits with his brother and wife which also happens to be the Christina’s father. Escaping the oppressive KC heat and humidity was wonderful…we couldn’t have picked better weather for a visit to Minnesota! One of the best parts of the trip was the non-stop conversation with Christina while traveling to and from. We live in the same metro area but seldom see each other face to face…that needs to change!
…and I’m also finally able to say, yes…I’ve been kayaking. It was one of those things that I really wanted to do but the unknown filled me with anxiety.
We rented kayaks at a conservation area about 10 minutes from our campground. He and I ended up in a double because there were not 3 singles. What we learned was its not like canoe paddling…different technique…and we are incapable of developing an insync rythm. Once we made it through the reeds and into the open water, I loved it. I’m thinking fall might be a great time to buy his and her kayaks…..
We also visited the Minnesota State Public School for dependent and neglected children museum and cemetery in Owatana, MN. – a place I won’t soon forget!
Until next time….
