Our Final Charleston Adventure: Kayaking with Kylo Ren

We had an absolute blast visiting Charleston a couple of weeks ago. My husband and I enjoyed exploring the city, eating delicious food, visiting a cat cafe, and hanging out on the beach. We also took Kylo Ren out for a couple of adventures. We strolled the beautiful pathways at Magnolia Plantation and Gardens and… we went kayaking!

Our Third Charleston Adventure: Kayaking with Kylo Ren

Kylo Ren has been canoeing before, so we were pretty confident that a kayak trip would go over well with him. We were right! He had a great time playing captain and seeing all of the sights. The weather was perfect too.

One of the coolest sights we saw was a family of dolphins! Unfortunately I wasn’t quick enough to catch a photo or video of them, but it was a highlight of our Charleston trip.

I was, however, able to catch lots of cute clips of Kylo enjoying his kayak trip. I hope you enjoy our short little movie 🙂

    Wow how exciting Kylo Ren! We saw you talking to the fish asking them to jump into the boat with you. Fish are not that smart so it was surprising you did not get at least a few takers MOL

    Mom L is now even more disappointed that she cannot attend BP this year. She luvluvluv’s holding Sophie and to think she will miss meeting Kylo Ren is too much for her to bear. Some time you must share with us how you know your kitties’ are really truly enjoying their outings. Mom L and I believe that TKS could be just such a cat but we don’t know how to tell if she is enjoying or just tolerating. Sigh

    Wow! What a fun adventure. I love that Kylo Ren enjoys going out on the water with you. I’m not sure I’m brave enough to try that with my cats (at least not yet). I’m very inspired by your adventures with your kitties. 🙂

    How cool! We didn’t see dolphins on our kayaking trip but we did see sea lions. I was telling the kayaking guy about how I knew a cat that kayaks actually!

    What did Kylo Ren think of the dolphins? It sounds (and looks) like a lot of fun! My Maltese likes going canoeing, and I think she’d enjoy a kayak as well.

    That look so fun. What an adventure for all of you. I love kayaking in calm water and open kayaks so that would be perfect for me. I especially LOVE seeing dolphins. What a treat. Is it easy to rent the kayaks there?

    Love the safety harness on Kylo Ren! Maybe we should think about something like that, to take Angel and Chuck to the vet in, instead of a big plastic box. Hmmm…
