My Kayak on Crane
Creek, Melbourne, Florida
As much as I love the St. Johns river,
I had long been eager to explore other waterways. Meeting
Princess and hearing about her adventures made
me want to get a kayak and try it too!
I looked for a second hand boat for over
a year, but no one was letting them go. Now I know why!
It is great to be able to throw a boat on top of a car and
drive to new places to explore.
While searching for a boat, I also searched
the internet for places to go kayaking, groups to join, types
of boats...it has been a bit of work gathering information,
so I'm going to try to share my findings with you here and
maybe save you a little time.
Some of the information here will be specific
to my location on the east coast of Florida, but I hope that
a lot will be helpful (or at least entertaining!) to a more
general group of boaters.

You can also find how to patch a leak in a kayak and build a kayak cart. I've had to learn these things the hard way, so I hope I can make it easier for you.
