Something You Always Wanted
Welcome back to the 30 Day Photo Challenge! It’s been a refreshing break for me to just take photos and have time to pack boxes to prepare for our upcoming move. As a blogger I tend to put a ton of pressure on myself to get posts out daily, this challenge has really been relaxing for me. Some days I get a good shot, some days I don’t.
On the days that I don’t get a good shot, I don’t post anything. It’s as simple as that.
I have found that I really look forward to each assignment, and I am learning much about my new equipment.
Today’s assignment: Something You Always Wanted. I have a very short list of “wants” in life.
I am pretty much content with everything I have and everything I don’t have.
You can have your mansions and million dollar homes. They are not for me.
You can have your designer wardrobes. Been there, done that. Don’t need to do it again.
You can have your fancy cars and yachts. I wouldn’t even know what to do with one if I had one.
But, I do want a kayak.
A red kayak to be specific.
I just love how the red boats look with the blue water and the white fluffy clouds in the sky. It’s completely a visual experience for me.
We learned to canoe when we were kids. We would go out each day on the river where we lived and enjoy the beautiful scenery.
The turtles sunning themselves on the rocks along the water were so peaceful.
The fish would jump, you could even fish from the boat if you wanted to. I hate fishing, but you could fish if you wanted to. Just saying.
But, as much as I enjoy canoeing, the boats are long, cumbersome and hard to handle. Even if you are canoeing with a partner.
You also can’t do serious rapids very well in a canoe without dumping it over. Rapids lend a fantastic thrill to the overall boating experience.
You really need to communicate well to the person in the back of the boat what lays ahead or you will have serious issues. My husband and I were the only boat not to capsize on the level 5 rapids we took on during a camping trip years ago. Just sayin.
I love the idea of a little kayak, easy to haul and store.
You can use it with or without a partner.
They are easy to slip into the peaceful water and row in the early morning, all by yourself.
I mentioned the other day that I won a membership to our local rowing club.
My debut on the water is next week, I can’t wait to share.
enjoy the view!
