There’s no better way to spend a summer weekend than to hit the beach and enjoy kayaking. Of course, any activity is much more enjoyable when you’re spending it with your loved ones.
I’d spent my past weeks beating deadlines on our new project and a lot of times I get home so late, and almost no bonding time with my two growing kids. I enrolled them on swimming class and badminton training but I know something else is missing. They’re enjoying the company of their training mates but they told me that they also want to spend time with me. Deep inside I knew I needed some break too. So when my wife told me to go to our favorite beach, I didn’t think twice anymore.
My kids enjoying the Kayak ride!
We drove to the nearest beach with our Kayak in tow some 80 miles away. There was only one problem during our travel to the beach. My old kayak trailer left tire was screeching almost the whole time. I’d it inspected in one of the gasoline station but I couldn’t find any problem. Eventually, we stopped on a tire repair shop and the mechanic there found out some bended metal parts inside and rusts too. I admit the trailer is too old already. I forgot when was the last time I’d used the kayak so I guess it’s high time to look for some kayak trailers manufacturer within the area. Anyway, our trip which usually takes us only about 2 hours ended up in 4 hours because of the repair done in the trailer.
As soon as we reached the beach, my kids and I were all powered up to ride the Kayak. The funny part was, we were not aware the beach resort we went to are offering Kayak already!
Kayak for Rent
Anyway, the most important thing was we enjoyed the beach, the Kayaking, my needed break and more importantly the bonding time with my kids (and wife too, of course!).

The Penn and Teller show has been running at the Rio Hotel and Casino for many years now, the same location where the World Series of Poker in Vegas Main Event final table has been held over the last few years. This famous Las Vegas magic show bedazzles guests with a flurry of amazing tricks done right in front of your very eyes. Make no mistake, this magic show is not all smoke and mirrors as you have come to expect with some amateur productions, but the real deal, Penn and Teller are true magicians in every sense of the word.
The Penn and Teller Show is both magical and funny. The Penn and Teller show is not like anything you will have ever seen before, yet alone in Las Vegas. For a start, instead of the boring, “dramatic” silence you get while tricks are being performed, Penn, the taller magician, narrates everything that is happening as it is happening. Yes, that’s right, a running commentary on a magic show given by the performer himself. In contrast to this is Teller, who almost silently performs the tricks that Penn is comically commentating on. As the show goes on, Read more »
