Kayaking in Bayou St. John – A family affair….

Mom has been talking about getting us all all out to kayak as a big group. Her wish finally came true. We all were free on a random Saturday morning and made plans to do a 2 hour family kayak trip.

Mom, Dad, Alex and Janice drove in from H-town. Ashley, Andrew, Doug and I met them at 8:45 at Bayou St. John. The Kayaks and our guide arrived a few minutes later. DSCF1670

Soon we were loading into our kayaks and paddling down the bayou.

Janice and I were the only two who were new to kayaking. We got the hang of it and started paddling into a headwind. DSCF1687 DSCF1695DSCF1692DSCF1726

We got the official tour of the Bayou. There is a lot of interesting history about this little bayou. We got to kayak around Park Island – an island that NEVER floods. I know where I want to live…

We did get one group shot:


Thanks Mom and Dad! That was awesome. Good idea. :)

Then we took our starving selves to the new Felipe’s on Carrollton.

Thank you Mom and Dad for kayaking and for lunch! You guys are amazing. It really was a fun day.

Love and Hugs, Lizzie
