2012 In Review

Although 2012 has not been our most adventurous year as far as camping trips, but some excited stuff did happen.  Here is our top 5 list!

  1. We got to Paddle Board on the crystal clear coast of Minorca, Spain.  An island off the coast of Spain that my family is from.  This was my first Paddle Board experience, but it was a lot of fun in the calm cove.  

2.  Also on our trip to Spain, we did a day hike up to the the top of the highest trail in   Urbasa y Andia National Park.  It was challenging for me, but worth it for the view.

3.  We had our maiden voyage in our two new kayaks!  We decided to buy a pair of Necky   Vector sit on top Kayaks right when the weather began heating up in the Spring.  

4.  Soon after Ed finished outfitting the Kayaks for fishing we took them to Dauphin Island Alabama.  We paddled about three miles out to an oil rig and tried our hands at fishing deeper water.  Although we only caught about four small trout, it made me feel like a boss to paddle that far in open water.

5.  In November, Ed participated in the first Spankin the Specks Kayak Fishing Tournament in Ocean Springs, Mississippi.  This was the first tournament of its kind in Mississippi, and Ed's team took all the categories related to Speckled Trout including first, second, third, and the shoot out!
