Inspiration Workshop [Week 4: Day of Play!]

Pin It
Linking again with Gussy Sews for Inspiration Workshop #4! This week's prompt: Spend the day playing.
Gussy Sews Inspiration Workshop!

Woo Hoo!  This was just the excuse I needed for a day with my Husband sans kiddos.  Now don't get me wrong, I love spending time with my girls, and even considered a beach day of play... but I have also learned when to seize the moment and ask my Dad and Stepmom to keep them for a few hours so Hubs and I can spend time together.

Now, it wasn't a full day of play, more like an hour... of kayaking...but, super fun all the same!

We headed over to Beaufort, NC to rent a tandem kayak... then we paddled Taylor's Creek:

My view from the front... Often we can see the wild banker ponies on this island... not this time around, though.

Hubby, Joe, paddling away.

Kayaking Joe & Mel
I promise I helped paddle some... really, I did.

Kayaking Mel
 See... there's me with a paddle!

Taking a short break on the Rachel Carson Preserve (island) which is across Taylor Creek from Beaufort's waterfront.

Such a fun Inspiration Workshop... our little Kayaking adventure made for a fun afternoon. :-)
