This morning Allison, Eva and I went to Cape Cod Kayak to join a paddling trip. Our friend Kim hooked us up with a double kayak and a top notch guide in her nephew Josh. Josh has been working in the store and on the water for the past seven years and he is a really great guide. He took us to Monk’s Cove and then around Toby’s Island. It was a really nice paddle with a very big current pushing us along so we cruised so quickly.
|We weren’t sure just how Eva would do on the paddle. We bought her a life jacket a few weeks ago in anticipation that we’d go on a paddle soon. We put Eva into the front cockpit of the tandem boat and I hopped in the back. Allison took my boat and she filmed our paddle using my Xshot Kayak Mount and Sanyo Xacti EC1. Eva started out excited and even dipped her own paddle into the water a couple of times and then as we got going she said, with a little trepidation, that she wanted to go home. Luckily I packed some Cheez-its and passed them up to her. She sat back, enjoyed her snack and the ride. I loved that she tried to do her own paddling too. She was so cute in her life jacket. After the trip we picked her up a Cape Cod Kayak T-shirt which she can probably wear in a few years (it is a little big on her).||
Before the trip I went and started an Everytrail trip however only one photo came out for the trip. However the actual trip itself was recorded on the GPS, that worked really well.
While we didn’t get a lot of photos using my cell phone we did get them on the Nikon, the Canon, the Sanyo and Flip too. I posted all those photos to Picasa in an album called Eva Kayaking. I did want to put up one more photo though, it was taken by Allison and it is of Eva and I in our tandem. I love this photo.

Doesn’t she look like a natural? She’ll be doing Eskimo rolls any day now.
We also got to spend some time at the beach as well as some time at the Falmouth Raw Bar. I hopped in the water today too. Eva got a big splash when she was trying to fill up a water bottle and she was all done with the water for the day. I went in a bit at a time and basically did so so that I could say that I took my first dip before June. It was cold. However, once my body numbed to it it was pleasant.
My sister Shelby works over at the Falmouth Raw Bar. We wanted to visit with her and check out the place. We enjoyed hanging out on the deck and also their clam chowder. We’ll have to go back some time for the twin lobster dinner or the Works, Lobster Dinner because both looked so tasty. We were also very tempted by the smell of the fries.
After our appetizer we headed back tot he house for a great dinner with Mom and Dad complete with corn on the cob.
