Kayak... sounds like a lovely idea.
I have often watched people skulling or canoeing and thought how nice it would be to have a small kayak to slowly (I have little arms) paddle around the lake or up the Concho in the early hours of morning... You could actually do that and then call and let me know how it went! Muslces sore from all that peaceful paddling? Worry not, for to this item we add a spa package from Waterford Day Spa!
