Novel's first kayak trip

We have a cute black lab/golden retriever cross puppy named Novel that Katherine is raising to be a service dog. (Novel has his own blog where you can see pictures of him and his accomplishments. Warning: Cuteness alert!)

So the other day Katherine and I decided to take Novel out for his first kayak trip.

He took to the boat like a natural and had very good balance, though he didn't quite like to sit still.

Look at that cute widdle puppy face.

Don't we live in a BEAUTIFUL place?

And just to prove that I was there... a picture of me for once (since I'm usually the one behind the camera, I have to make an effort to do this!)

We paddled around the lake to the place where there's a rope swing. Some kind and wonderful soul hung this rope from a tree limb, and apparently it has been there for years. We discovered it and play on it, astonished that we're the only ones out here. Where is everyone else? You would think there would be a line all day long for something this fun that's free!

Getting ready to launch...

9 seconds of pure fun. 

Somebody was tired on the way home.


  1. Rebekah, what lake is this? It may be one that we went to last summer :)

  2. Ahhh do not TELL me that you were THIS close to me and we didn't get to see each other. It's called Watauga Lake. That would be so sad...I would have loved to see you!


Thank you for commenting! I love comments! You have just made my day! :-)
