Getting my kayak clean up and ready to roll was only the first step for the summer. Some training was involved with my dog to get her used to sitting inside of it. At first she was timid and nervous, however, after hauling a few biscuits into the cockpit she was able to overcome her fears and stand inside. Next up is a trip to Billington Sea Kayak in Plymouth for a new paddle. Finally, we will try out Big Sandy Pond for our first attempt at kayaking. Both of us will be outfitted with lifejackets, just in case, and I’m hoping to have a nice dry maiden voyage.
