Trading Hiking for Kayaking for the Summer Months

June 25, 2017 Croton River

Summer is not hiking weather for us, however we have taken to the water. Two weeks ago we went to Croton point park, Today we went to Croton once again, but we tried the Croton River Tributary.  Certainly quieter than the state park, and some serene calm to begin the day. It was fairly shallow in places, and fairly clear as well, however there were pretty murky spots with lots of Hydrilla or Water Thyme.

This is pretty much what my summer boating outfit will look like. New hat, new PFD (Personal Floatation Device) and a beautiful new Wilderness Systems Pongo 120 Kayak.

Two times out so far since we got them. My comfort level has gotten better, although I still focus on the Horizon rather than looking down.

Funny, I have less issue with looking down when I am rock or ice climbing  than I do looking into water.
