A - Z Challenge: "K" is for Kayak

During the month of April, I am participating in the Blogging From A-Z April 2012 Challenge, where we post everyday except for Sundays. I have decided to make flashcards for the letter of the day out of my photos, and then use the picture as a writing prompt. I am using my Thesaurus to create a story out of words beginning with the letter "K", using as many as I can and still having the story make sense.

Thank you for your visit, and please come back again tomorrow! I'll be by to visit those who leave me comments, and also visit as many others as I can. If you like what you see, please feel free to become my newest follower. ~ Kathy M.

"Kathryn and Kaden's Kayaking Adventure"
by Kathy Matthews

Kathryn lived in Klamath Falls, but her favorite place to kayak was  Elk Lake.  Not a kept woman, Kathryn keenly reserved her weekends for kayaking.  She would strap her kayak onto the roof of her Kia turn the key and head out toward the Cascade Lakes Highway. 

Keeping to the speed limit out of Klamath Falls, Kathryn kidnapped her kindred spirit, Kaden, who worked at the Circle K on Kevlar Street.  He kissed her kindly as he climbed into the Kia, and told Kathryn that her kayak was killer.  Kathryn appreciated that Kaded was not a kinky sort; kind kisses were the ones that she liked the best. 

As they drove toward Elk Lake, Kaden said, "Knock-Knock!"  Kathyrn said, "Who's there?"  From his knapsack, Kaden brought out a cute little kitten (who was wearing a keepsake kerchief as a collar) sayin, "Your new baby kitty!" 

This nearly caused a knock-down-drag-out, because everybody knows that you can not take a kitten kayaking!  Kathryn called him a know-nothing knucklehead and Kaden called her a know-it-all.  In the end, Kaden had to do some serious kowtowing to avoid being taken back to the Circle K ... with the cat. 

The coffee kvetch ladies at the Elk Lake diner saved the day, agreeing to watch the kitten while Kathryn and Kaden kayaked around the lake at 10 knot speed. 

The end.

What a neat post. I came over from the challenge. This is a great blog.

As for kayaks, I have to admit you can keep them. They terrify me. All that water and such. :)

Best of luck with the rest of your challenge.

Your stories are very amusing and shows your creativity and talent. The photo of the kayaks is amazing.
I've visiting on the A to Z challenge. I did my favorite room with the 'K' letter. Loved your favorite room, too.
