Not-very-wordy Wednesday: Catherine buys a kayak!

I’ve been saying for several years I was going to buy a kayak. I’ve even mentioned it in blog posts. Like these:

Well, on Monday I DID IT!

I BOUGHT A KAYAK. Take a look:

Epic GPX Ultra kayak. It’s 12′ 11″ (363 cm) long, and weighs 27 lbs (12.24 kg). That is super-duper-light! This means I can load, unload and carry my boat all by myself, without any help at all. That was the main sticking point for buying a kayak– sea kayaks weigh on average 50 lbs (22.6 kg) or more, and are 14–17 feet long (426–518 cm) which makes them awkward and unwieldy for moving around. This baby is light, maneuverable, and apparently built for speed. I’m so happy we found each other!
