Social Distancing on the Water in your Kayak

Staying home and social distancing has made time go slowly for many of us during this Pandemic.  Maybe you are like me and going slightly stir-crazy right now.  I know I need to be careful because I’m vulnerable to the virus (being 66, a diabetic, asthmatic and on chemo drugs).  I know I need to be careful, but I would love to get out.

Lately I’ve been considering getting in my kayak and floating some of the local lakes in Bella Vista.  I checked and the lakes are not closed.  In my kayak, I can social distance and still enjoy the beautiful Ozark mountains we live in.

Bella Vista has a “Paddlers club” that I belong to which you can read about on their Bella Vista Paddlers Facebook Group.  They have a weekly schedule to float all of the seven Bella Vista Lakes.

I got this image with my iphone from my kayak.

You can also get some pretty awesome images of sunrises and sunsets from your kayak.  I’ve included some of mine below so you can imagine how beautiful it can be on the water in your kayak.

Kayak with a group or Alone

Whether you kayak as part of a group or alone, it is still save.  You choose how close to others you are in the water.
