Day trip to Bartram Gardens
Okay, now THIS was fun.
After getting a warm-up on our outdoors-y weekend at Camp Galil, Mike and I joined a group of 14 other kayakers and paddled down the Schuylkill River. Our destination: Bartram Gardens.
What I liked best about this was that it’s such a hidden gem of an activity in Philadelphia!
Mike and I were in a two-person kayak, which is a lot more difficult to maneuver than a one-person kayak. By the end, we got the hang of it. I have to say, I was pretty impressed by our teamwork.
Once at Bartram Gardens, we pulled up on shore and hiked a bit to our destination. Mike decided to be director of photography in this particular video:
We arrived at a clearing, where the folks from the Kayak tours set up our boxed lunches.
Behind us, was the city.
Then we did a little exploring.
Then, it was back into the kayaks for our hour-long paddle back to Philly! I had a great time. Who cares that Mike and I docked last! We laughed the most!
