Ailsa’s travel-themed photo challenge this week is Transportation.
It’s amazing how much stuff can be transported in a sea kayak! When setting out on a kayak expedition, there’s no need to leave the creature comforts at home. Compared to a multiday backpacking or bicycle trip, a sea kayak expedition is a positively luxurious experience
… until each morning, when all that stuff has to be fitted back into the kayaks
We put off the packing as long as we possibly can and stand around drinking coffee
It’s such a relief to have the last bag in the boat, to snap on the sprayskirt and push off into new waters…
