North Carolina | Nighttime Lake Paddle

What a great paddle this was. I had started my busy season and was working my butt off, but I had the perfect lakeside camping spot. I literally was able to launch our kayaks from my camp site right into the lake!

One of my very sweet brides Jessie bought us the Oru Kayak solar lights as a thank you gift after photographing her wedding. I was so antsy to try them out together and go for a night paddle on the lake. The kayaks are opaque white plastic, so the light shines through really well. They were also really fun to photograph! I started the paddle right before sunset, paddled out to the middle of the lake and cracked open an IPA as I watched dusk fall and bats fly all around me. The colors out here are just amazing!

Plenty more adventures with our Oru Kayaks to come! Thanks for reading!
