As one of our wedding presents, my wife and I recently acquired a beautiful new canoe that looks exactly like the one in the picture, below. I could not be happier about this.
I mean, just look at it. Ah.
Water has always fascinated me, and boats of course being the transportation mode of choice for getting around on water, have also caught my interest. “Vessels of freedom” as Kenny Chesney describes in one of his songs.
Built to get you out on the water and get away from the daily grind…and hey, engines are optional. A few paddles are all I need to get around. 🙂
We’ve taken ours out one time so far. Other than struggling to get it properly tied onto the vehicle (oops) it was a perfect ending to a long, busy week. So peaceful. Can’t wait to get it back in the water this summer and unwind out on the water.
I’m thankful for this blessing. Sure, it’s just a 15 foot long piece of fiberglass – but it’s a way to enjoy life and spend time with the people I love. I feel fortunate to have it.
Have a great day.
