Throwback Adventure – Kayaking – Massachusetts

I will have sections of my blog that I will title “Throwback Adventure”, and will plan on posting them every Thursday. These are journeys we have taken before I started the blog, but are well worth sharing. Many of these Throwback Adventures will include our Buster, who was known for his crazy tail, his happy howl, and his zest for life. We miss him dearly…he is forever in our hearts!

In the Summer of 2017 Shadow and I embarked on a peaceful kayaking Adventure. We had befriended a woman and her dog at a local park, and were thrilled that she offered to let us utilize her kayak. Unlike you might expect my water loving Shadow is generally not a fan of boats.  He does not appreciate the rocking of a boat or any surface that brings uncertainty (smart boy!).  However, I somehow was able to convince him to board the kayak, and we graceful kayaked around the lake. It was a very special memory I have with my Shadow. I seriously considered purchasing a kayak at the time, although that dream never came to fruition. However, we had a lovely day relaxing ON the lake, and of course Shadow appreciated some swims before and after our kayak Adventure. I was grateful that our friend took a couple photographs and a video (even if it’s sideways – oops) to memorialize this event forever. Definitely a special Adventure that I will always treasure!
