My lovely Husband bought me a Kayak for my Birthday this year. Now I’m not an experienced paddler but I have been wanting a small boat to get out on the river with the added benefit of toneing up my arms.
On the River Great Ouse you really should have a small boat licence for a Kayak which will set you back the princely sum of £35 a year.
This is a Intex inflateable Kayak for 2 people, though as the maximum weight is 100kg that would be 2 very small people, so I use it as a single hander. It comes with a great manual pump that is surprisingly effective, only taking 5 minutes to inflate and then I am ready to go. In fairness I have tied it up to the pontoon adjacent to Apple as I don’t want to have to inflate and deflate it every time I want to go out.
It has been really easy to get used too and now I am happily off up or down the river taking advantage of the last few days of summer.
Here are a few of the photographs I have taken over the last week or so. I am sure there will be plenty more in the future.
