Hiking & Canoeing with Kylo Ren, Adventure Cat

With Spring finally here and my new GoPro camera in hand, we decided that we would take Kylo Ren out for an exciting adventure. We went canoeing! Sophie has been canoeing before, but Kylo had never been. He has turned out to be quite the Adventure Cat, so we had no doubts that he would enjoy a canoe trip. We were right – he LOVED it!

Before heading off Saturday morning, we loaded up the car with all of the essentials – harness + leash, life vest, treats, water + water bowl, towels, and Sleepypod carrier – then we hit the road to Amerson River Park! This park is by far one of the best local parks we have. It is located beside the Ocmulgee River and has many overlooks and viewpoints, paved pathways for walkers, dirt trails and paths for bikers and hikers, places to put canoes and kayaks in and out, and more.

Along the way, we parked the canoe on the river bank a couple of times and got out to explore a bit.ย We let Kylo Ren lead the way! He never steered us wrong.

As we neared the hottest parts of the day, Kylo needed a break from the sun and heat. It’s a good thing we packed all of the supplies to build a Kylo Ren Canoe Fort – a Sleepypod carrier and towels!

I put Kylo’s Sleepypod at my feet and placed a towel over it, which created a nice cool and shady place for him to hang out. He was able to come and go as he pleased, alternating between my lap andย his fort.

We all enjoyed a wonderful day together and look forward to our next canoe trip! Perhaps next time we will bring Kylo Ren and Sophie both! ๐Ÿ˜€
