Sea Horses and kayaking

Just south of Bayfield is a wonderful beach called Bayview. A very nice sandy beach that has good shallow water. Excellent for wading and swimming without worries for younger swimmers. The water here is clear and if you paddle out with a kayak, you can see the bottom in as much as 20 feet of water. Sitting in the kayak looking back at the beach made me think of access to a different perspective. I got the same feeling while skiing in Colorado. Kayaking and skiing are both enjoyable but it is the access to the view that I really enjoy. On top of a mountain at 12,000 feet, looking at the view or floating in the bay looking back at the landscape it is much the same. People can talk about all the technology of skis and kayaks, the best models or brands, all the pros and cons of owning this or that but it’s of no great concern to me. I want to be in a wonderful setting. Nice weather does help this situation. The Sea Horses were on the beach and got a cool down in the water after a run down the beach.
