Our World - Kayaking on Cotton Bayou

On our recent trip to Orange Beach, Alabama we went on a little kayaking expedition on Cotton Bayou.


We picked out the kayaks, got life vests, paddles and a map and off we went.


SuperPizzaBoy really took to it and did very well.


He left the old man in the dust, so to speak.


Sweetie was looking good also. She always looks good, kayak or not.


The bayou was busy. We got attached by a pirate boat. The pirates were all yealling "ARGH!!!" but we got away.


Or maybe they are the ones that got away?


For some reason Sweetie had the map. How did she get the map. I'm supposed to have the map. That way I can be telling her stuff, not she tellling me stuff. Do you like the thumb action in the photo?


We pulled up on a deserted island for a lunch of peanut butter sandwhiches.


And here's a YogiCam view of the return trip. Tell you what my quads were burning after this trek but we had fun.

Looks like a fun day out on the water. Kayaks just glide across the water if you don't work too hard.

Jeanie said...

Kudos to all three of you. I haven't kayaked much, but enough to know that it is pretty hard work. Good job chasing off that pirate ship.

Terri said...

Looks like fun times- glad the pirates let you go...that was a close call!

EG CameraGirl said...

I wish I were out there right now! It's HOT here today!

Lois Evensen said...

What a fun way to get exercise, too! :)

sylvia kirkwood said...

Oh, what fun shots for the day!! All of you look as though you're enjoying every moment!!

Now that's the kind of kayak trip I like, through photos ;) Looked like a whole lot of fun.
Great week to you,

I've only kayaked a few times but loved it. I especially liked when we had a double and my husband did most of the work. It's my arms that ache afterwards. Great distance shot in the last one!

Jonni Baloney said...

That looks fun!

Gary said...

Looks like great fun. Boom & Gary of the Vermilon River, Canada.

love to kayak. i try to go every weekend - sometimes i'm lucky enough to make that happen. your location looks fun.

Ellen said...

Looks like fun...I've never tried kayaking. Of course Sweetie has the map, you men won't ever stop and ask for directions.

Gaelyn said...

That looks like a busy waterway for little kayaks, but I guess you three do make a formidable team. I've spent lots more time in a canoe. But don't think my shoulders could take the paddling any more.

(Still looking for that Sherpa;)

ladyfi said...

What lovely photos of the bay and of your family.

Women are always supposed to have the maps as the men never ask for directions, right?

Jill Harrison said...

I wish I was more confident with kyaking. I have only done it a few times, and we have talked about taking kyaks on our camping trips so we can explore water ways.
Have a wonderful week. I am linking up to you through Our WOrld Tuesday.

Kayaking is one great sport! And with family it must a lot of fun!

Fun60 said...

I am so jealous. I love kayaking. You have such a different view of things and it is great fun. Wish I could have joined you.

Bill Nicholls said...

I've not done that in a long time, mind you falling out in the Thames does not have the same apeal

Birdman said...

Looks like it was a fun, family outing. Quads or not!

Sandy Carlson said...

Yes, but did Sweetie fold the map?
