We took the Plunge!

After our recent paddling adventure, we made the decision as a family to buy a canoe. The simple fact that the WHOLE family can easily fit in and go on an adventure made it a pretty easy decision.

We knew which boat we wanted and it just so happened that there was one spare in our make and model in a new shipment of boats (almost like it was meant to be). We claimed it as ours and picked it up just before Easter. 

This year we were travelling down to our property at Durras, on the South Coast. What better time than to crack the champers and give our boat her maiden voyage. 

We picked up some kids paddles while we were there and they are just beautiful! 'Otter' Ollie and "Princess Paddler" loved being able to paddle with us. 

We spent 2 days out on the water over the weekend and without luggage in the boat we were all able to explore and experiment, really getting a feel for the boat.

We are all excited about the adventures to be had both close to home and in new interesting places. The fact that they all get us outdoors and exploring the world is just the icing on the cake. We'll be sure to keep you posted :)
