Can you hear it? There is real music coming from our paddles as they dip deep into the water. I believe that the couple that kayaks together stays together. Mike and I dearly love our excursions into area rivers to do our thing. I favor kayaks over canoes as they are more fun and easier to refresh yourself being that much closer to the water.
The Pere Marquette River has more challenges than say the Pine River because there are more obstacles within that river. Downed tree limbs or even trees themselves bring a whole new meaning to the word “awareness”. Mike usually takes the lead and I follow where he goes and hopefully not into a downed tree. Our usual kayaking distance is about 15 miles and a friend drops us off and then picks us up at the prearranged location.
Kayaking is a great way to spend a summer day regardless of the river you choose. And while you’re at it, listen to the music of the paddles!
