Our Own Kayak

After wanting one for so long, we finally bought a kayak for ourselves. It’s a two person, self-bailing, sit-on-top, Cobra II kayak that we bought used. It’s wide and stable which also means slow, but good enough for us. We didn’t get a chance to try it out over the weekend, so we went today after work:

This is taken on the Opaekaa Stream, near where it meets the Wailua River. We’re fortunate to live only 5 minutes away from some great kayaking on the largest river in Hawaii. There are lots of other rivers to explore this winter and bays next summer when the ocean is calmer again. I’m also proud of the rope and pulley system I installed to hang the kayak right over the car in the carport for easy loading and unloading.
