I see lots of posts about using the TC to gain access to Motorcycling, boating, ATvs etc. How about some pics of those of us who use the TC to access Non-motorized recreation. Canoeing, kayaking, skiing (no lifts), hiking etc.

Here's mine.

We spent last weekend at Winslow Memorial Park kayaking on Casco Bay in Freeport Maine.

As you can see, it was a stressful weekend.

Anybody else got some?

Farctic:

That shot of the heron with song bird in the foreground is awesome! Perfectly framed, nice depth of field [emoticon]

Cheers,

Nice looking kayak - is that a Pygmy? Did you build it?

Ted - aren't Joe and I lucky to have that location close to our own back door yard. You two had super weather last weekend and hope the wind died down a bit for you on Saturday. Thanks again for sharing that steak and potato on the fire supper with us. The whole Casco Bay area is a really magical place.

Silversand: credit for the photos goes to the DW. She's got a great eye for a scene.

JohninSD: Pygmy Arctic Tern 17. Yes I built it and it is one wonderful boat. Have you built one?

Twomaineiacs: We should all be so lucky, and you and Joe are welcome at our campfire anytime.

FarcticOx;
I've built two Chesapeake Light Craft kayaks, one a Chesapeake 17, the other a Sport Tandem, both are great boats. Looked at Pygmy but I went with the Chesapeake kits because I prefer the rounded decks to the faceted ones. Here's a pic of the camper with boats on top.

Great shots Farctic! I'm not only inspired but have just bought a 16 ft canoe and hope to have similar fun. Having a serious problem though trying to figure how to use my Yakima rack on top of my Outfitter. It won't work as the curve (rocker) of the canoe leaves only the front and back 3 inches of the canoe touching the gunwale brackets. Not sure what to do but boy I want to use it real bad. Thanks for inspiration shots. And real nice kayak you have there.
