Canoeing at Chain O' Lakes on Memorial Day
We decided to go canoeing today with the kids. Chris had heard about a place not too far a way from home that had great canoeing. The park was called Chain O' Lakes. There are 7 different lakes connected by channels. We canoed to 4 of the seven. We originally thought that it would be fun to do it by paddle boat. Ha, Ha. Our legs were on fire before we even made it out of the first lake. So, needless to say we traded our paddle boat in for a canoe. It proved to be an excellent decision. The kids both took turns paddling and did a great job. We saw lots of wildlife including turtles, fish, ducks wit babies, dragon flies, a blue heron, birds and tons of lilly pads.
After that adventure it is time for a nap! Happy Memorial Day!
