Paddling on Quiet Water

We love quiet water paddling. We get to go places and see things that we couldn't see otherwise. We get closer to birds and other animals. We've seen a buck deer swimming in the middle of a lake, eagles fishing, and waterfalls falling directly into a lake. Birds don't fly from us.

We've paddled our two tandom kayaks, Nessie and Clem on many wonderful places. Nessie is the more traveled of the two kayaks. She has been as far west and north as Glacier National Park in Montana, as far east as Maine (Lubec is the eastern most town in the US). Nessie has been to several national parks including Acadia, Jenny Lake in Grand Teton National Park, and Swiftcurrent Lake in Glacier National Park..

Clem's travels so far have been confined to North Carolina and Virginia. She's been to Merchant's Millpond in North Carolina and Holliday Lake in Virginia. We plan to take her on several trips in 2012.

All our paddling is on quiet water. Mostly lakes with an occasional slow flowing river. We find that this is a great way to visit many of the beautiful places and allows us to get close to birds and other wildlife.
