Kayaking – A Cure For The Empty Nest Syndrome
I’m sure that many of you can relate to this subject matter. After speaking with several of our customers at PortableKayaks.com, it seems that the majority are slightly older, often retired couples that are looking for an enjoyable recreational activity that they can do together and kayaking has been the result. Using an inflatable kayak makes it easier to try out their new pastime because they don’t have to worry about adding a kayak rack to their car or a large storage area in their garage.
One such couple, Linda & Marc Venard from Indiana, recently posted a nice blog article about their experiences. Their four kids had gone off to college and they discovered kayaking as their cure for the empty nest syndrome. Linda and Marc had done some kayaking tours in the past on trips to Florida and found that they liked the sport. After researching their options, they decided that an inflatable Sea Eagle 370 would best fit their desire to have a kayak with them anywhere they went.
So far, it’s worked out great. They’ve kayaked some excellent waterways in Indiana and taken their 370 on a trip to Michigan where they paddled near Sleeping Bear Dunes, near Traverse City and Whitefish Bay in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula not far from Tahquamenon Falls. (Speaking of the falls, check this out.)
You can read their entire article and a couple pictures on the Sea Eagle blog. If you have a similar story or an experience that’s totally different, let us know. We’d be happy to post your story right here on the Inflatable Kayak Blog.
