Now that Joel and I have our kayaks we were both anxious to take them down the river. We put them in a few miles from our house into the Mississippi. It was a gorgeous day and I loved being on the river with Joel!
It was really fun having a view of the Minneapolis skyline for most of our trip down the river.
We pulled out at Boom Island Park in North Minneapolis. It was a really nice park with a great boat launching area.
There was a light house and a paddle boat. It was very quaint!
Over all the trek down the river was not as picturesque. Most of the time we were boating through very industrial areas. It was a very interesting tour of the cities. I am looking forward to going down the St. Croix and enjoying the fall colors and scenery.
