Travel Theme: Couples, Take Two

By Vladimir Brezina

Ailsa’s travel-themed photo challenge this week is Couples.

Ah, the romance of shared travel by kayak! And what better to ensure that shared togetherness than a double kayak?

Soon arguments break out, and loud words carry over the water, to the secret amusement of other paddlers.

“Shouldn’t you be steering more to the left?”

“I know where I am going!”

“I thought we agreed to stop on that beach over there!?”

The couple have trouble paddling at the same rate and synchronizing their strokes…

and both feel that they are doing all the work

until they both just put down their paddles in frustration

No wonder double kayaks are known as “divorce boats”!
