Ahoy! Go Kayaking with the Statue of Liberty!

We're on a boat!  Sort of...

It's easy to live in New York and forget you're surrounded by water, so sometimes it's a good idea just to get into it.  You might get a staph infection, but it's worth it.

Red Hook Boaters offers free kayaking in the summer and we warmed up this kayak good as the first kayakers of this season as part of the Red Hook Fest. 

This is a fun thing to do with the kids!  You can make a day out of it...Go kayaking, eat at Hometown Barbecue (or another awesome restaurant in the neighborhood), get some pie at Steve's Authentic Key Lime Pies and then treat yo self to a $1.99 toilet brush at Ikea (or get someone else to do the boating by taking the New York Water Taxi, which is free on weekends)!  It's all within walking distance to each other, too.  Brooklyn!

This is the area you can kayak for free with the Red Hook Boaters

The shipping container is also the "office" of the Red Hook Boaters

Not only do you get a view of the Statue of Liberty, you get to see this, one of the 7 Wonders of the World

Beautiful even though there's plenty of trash floating around in the water

After working up an appetite, we got about 10 lbs of meat at Hometown Barbecue in Red Hook
