Travel theme: Transportation

kayak_trip-end

One of the blogs I follow is Where’s My Backpack?  This week’s topic is transportation which brings me to posting the above photo.

It was the end of the day’s kayak adventure where we paddled to Clam Island, near Craig, Alaska and had a picnic on the beach.  While kayaking may not be the main mode of transportation of most people, it enables one to relax and enjoy Nature, a place to be alone with your thoughts in the vast ocean of the beauty that surrounds you.

It reminds me of a quote by Thornton Wilder:  “We can only be said to be truly alive in those moments when our hearts are conscious of our treasures.”

  1. I love to explore in a kayak. You’re so right that it gives you a closer connection to the natural world around us. It’s like you have front row seats in the middle of all the action 🙂

  2. So right. It’s easy to be carried away with the hustle and bustle of life and miss “living life” itself. Just the beautiful picture in this post and the words of inspiration, we need to make each day as meaningful as possible.
