You would think after living here for fifteen years that we would have discovered all the wonderful outdoor activities there are in Vermont but we haven't. This year we have discovered many beautiful nearby lakes. I always imagined that the lakes in the area would be small and pretty uninteresting but boy was I wrong.
As I spend much of my day on my feet, I was looking for a sport that took me off my feet and kept me outside. Kayaking seemed like a good choice. A great workout with great views and a host of cool gear to buy. What more could you ask for? In the month or so that we have had our kayaks, we have been out numerous times and continue to get more recommendations for lakes we need to visit. So much to see.
Next time you visit Vermont, please do continue to bike and hike but try also to discover Vermont's Great Lakes. I've always wondered where all those cars with kayaks and canoes on top were going. Now, I know.
