At the end of June, I called my sister Jane and she told me about a wonderful weekend she had just come back from, which included a variety of boating including kayaking. She went on to tell me how she had just gone out and bought a small kayak. She was talking about exactly what I wanted to do. It must be in the genes. So, being the impulsive sort, I went right out and bought the same kayak, a Perception Sparky. We bought this boat just before the 4th of July. We've had a lot of fun with this little yellow kayak. Now, that we've gotten the bug, we decided to buy another one -- a tandem kayak so that either 2, 3 or even 4 of us could go out at once. So, a couple of days ago, we bought an Old Town Twin Otter tandem kayak. This is a big roomy boat -- very stable. We plan to take it out for it's maiden voyage this afternoon.
