I forgot to mention that there were lots of Pelicans on the water. Every time I would get in position to take their picture they would fly off.

I tried one kayak and did an Eskimo roll. Well, okay, a half of an Eskimo roll while trying to get in. I decided the cockpit was a bit too small. At least I was wearing my swim trunks.

Funny you should mention the Pungo 120. That was Chris's second favorite boat. But she wanted a sit on top because she likes the ease of getting off and on the boat for a swim during the summer. Plus it has a huge cargo area for holding a cooler.

I paddled on Chico Bayo a couple years ago, and tried out a Pungo 120 kayak. I started out in my canoe, and then changed into the kayak down at the beach area and then paddled the rest of the time in it. That Bayou does have a lot of industrial type scenery, but we saw water birds also.
