Instant Stay-Cation

Spontaneously took a stay-cation for 2 hours by driving over to Oakland's Jack London Square and renting a kayak at California Canoe and Kayak. I had to be pre-qualified because of the wind on the Oakland-Alameda estuary. Love that I've taken a sea kayaking course.

Out on the beautiful water, which wasn't even choppy, I instantly felt calm and relaxed, even when paddling near giant container ships. A sea lion came over to say hello, as well as some jet skiers and fellow kayakers. The weather today is absolutely perfect for a day in the Bay.

Being out there made me remember how much I love the water. A house/condo/apartment near the water, or even a houseboat, would be the ideal next living arrangement.
