Renting Kayaks on Lake Woodlands!  One The Woodlands newest amenities! 

Everytime I drive over Lake Woodlands with my kids, they have been asking to kayak Lake Woodlands and explore the lake!

We started out at Riva Row Boat House, they provided life jackets and our choice of single or tandem kayaks.

It took awhile for everyone to get the whole rowing thing down!

We got to enjoy some local wildlife, a heron bird was nearby.

Next we had to decide if we wanted to go the huge water fountain or the dragon, located at Southshore Park, on Lake Woodlands.

The kids wanted to get misted by the fountain.

Then we went towards Northshore Park to see the ducks and fishermen!

We had a sooo much fun and we all agreed that next time we go kayaking we need to go out for atleast 2-3 hours so we have enough time to go to both Northshore Park and Southshore Park.

Pippa, I love kayaks and would have loved to be in that group having such a wonderful time in the Woodlands. You have absolutely some of the best photos in the Rain. Thanks so much for sharing your special talent as always from your area of the world.

That looks like tons of fun.  When I think of kayaking I think of them flipping over and back upright like on some of the outdoor shows I've seen.  This is a little more my speed.
