Since we got to Ohio, our kayaks have been sitting on my Mom's driveway next to the rig. They (and we) haven't been in the water since late March when we kayaked on Lake Pleasant just north of Phoenix.
So yesterday we decided to take a spin on the lake at Findley State Park near my Mom's in Wellington, Ohio.
Findley isn't a challenging paddle, but it has enough inlets, overhanging trees, and wildlife to make it interesting. Since it was a Saturday, we had company -- probably two dozen other kayaks, canoes and paddle boarders were on the water, plus a lot of folks were fishing along the shore. The lake is big enough that it didn't seem crowded.
To get in the water we used a boat launch that put us in the lake with dry feet -- the first time that's ever happened. With all the kayaking we do, we've only seen this particular launch (called an EZ Launch and which also allow folks in wheel chairs to get in/out of kayaks or canoes) twice; both are just a few miles from my Mom's.
