Amazing Day!!

Today was an amazing day!

A few months ago, we bought two Living Social vouchers for 2 hours of kayaking from Issaquah Paddle Sports at Lake Sammamish State Park.  They were only good Monday through Friday and expired tomorrow so Tex took a day off work today in order to use the vouchers.

Lake Sammamish is located in the City of Issaquah.  The lake is just about 2 miles from Issaquah Village RV Park where we live.

Neither one of us had ever kayaked before but we have used a canoe.  We immediately both fell in love with kayaking.  It was so much easier to maneuver and paddle and felt much more stable than the canoe did.

It was so relaxing being out on the water.  We had a boat many years ago and didn’t realize how much we missed being on the water until today.

Hard to believe I-90 is right behind those trees in the front

Letting go of some stress!

This lake is in the middle of town.  I-90 is right behind those houses


Such a beautiful gem in the middle of town

The water was so clear!  It was very deep though.

A little friend passed us by

More friends

Just relaxing!

Such a beautiful lake in the middle of Issaquah

Hard to believe there is a huge town between the trees and that mountain

Blue Heron wasn't scared of us at all

Do you see the ducks butts in the air?

Some ducks and some duck butts!

We have talked about buying kayaks in the past but never gave it any serious talk but now that we have been out on the water in one, we are definitely going to look for some to purchase. 

Our day on the water ended all to soon but we are definitely making plans to kayak in our future!

After we were done kayaking, we went and grabbed some lunch at our favorite restaurant, Taqueria La Vendita.  On the way home, we had to pass West Coast Armory, where Tex has purchased two guns in the past.  Recently, a new gun came out, the Glock 43.  He has talked about this gun a lot so we stopped in to take a look. 

Long story short, we ended up purchasing the new gun.  Since our 29th wedding anniversary is Saturday, I told Tex Happy Anniversary!  LOL!!

Tomorrow, we take our RV back to Auburn - Kent Valley RV to have the leak on the water line to the ice maker fixed as well as our awning repaired.  We spent the evening breaking up camp and getting ready to drive down there tomorrow. 

Very busy day, but it was a great day for Tex to release some work stress and just to have a good time.

Until next time!
