Kayaking For Kicks

We seem to be on a kayak kick recently, with a post about a kayaking dog and featuring an arty shot of a kayak in a recent Photo Of The Week posting. If you’ve never tried kayaking, then it’s something that should be on your bucket list. And there’s no better place to take your first spin than on our very own Schroon Lake or Schroon River.

Schroon Lake Marina and the Towne Store both have kayaks and paddles to rent. If you are in the market to buy one, I highly recommend this model, which I’ve been using since Father’s Day.  It’s very easy for one person to manage, offers a stable and comfortable ride, and zips through the water. The adjustable foot pegs makes this a kayak for most sizes. The padded seat back makes for a comfortable trip.

And if you are feeling lucky and want to help the Schroon Lake Chamber of Commerce in the process, then enter to win a Pelican Pursuit, worth more than  $900. Donations are $1 per ticket or 6 for $5. They are available at the the Chamber's store front on Main Street. The drawing is on September 3 during the Street Dance on the Labor Day Weekend.
