Welcome to Travels with Nessie.
Nessie and Clem
This site is about our travels with and without our tandem kayaks, Nessie (our original kayak) and Clem (our new kayak). We've been lucky to visit much of the US on our travels. We've taken either Nessie or Clem on several of our trips and have greatly enjoyed quiet water paddling in them. But sometimes they have to stay home--you can't get a 16 feet long kayak in the overhead bin on an airplane. Check out About Nessie and Clem for more information about our Kayaks.
Our paddling interest is limited to quiet water--lakes, ponds, slow moving rivers, and coastal water. We seek out pretty and interesting quiet water and provide photos and descriptions of these paddles. We don't do whitewater. Lakes on windy days are rough enough for So if you're interested in quiet water paddling, check the Quiet Water section.us.
Canyonlands National Park
If you're interested in the wonderful National Parks in the US, check out the National Parks Pages. Or just pick a page at random from the menus. The most recent additions to the National Parks pages are Cumberland National Seashore and Theodore Roosevelt National Park
We've been on many trips where we've had to leave the kayaks home. Many of these trips have been in North Carolina and you'll find information on them in the Exploring NC section.
We have several pages of photographs to help us remember the beauty of the places we've visited and to share with others. We have photos on all the trip pages and we have photo galleries with more photos. You can find a list of galleries at Photo Galleries.
There are several books and websites that we have discovered over the years that have been very useful to us.
Favorite Paddles Merchant's Mill Pond and Bear Creek Lake
If we had to choose our favorite paddling spots in North Carolina, we'd pick Merchant's Mill Pond in Eastern North Carolina and Bear Creek Lake in Western North Carolina.
We haven't paddled Bear Creek Lake for quite awhile.
