Kayaks Come To Chimes

Anytime you look at the Bogue Falaya River in Covington, you can almost imagine seeing someone (maybe even yourself) kayaking, or paddle boarding through that calm water, enjoying the serenity.

Chimes Restaurant in Claiborne Hill is always good for a balcony seat to view the river, but something new is afoot at Chimes (and I don't mean the goats.)

Canoe & Trail Adventures has set up a kayak and paddleboard rental service at the Chimes dock, with plenty of watercraft in bright colors, life preservers, and paddles to go along with them. The rental service is open five days a week, which includes Saturdays and Sundays, and folks can reserve the kayaks ahead of time by going to their website.

According to their website, Canoe and Trail Adventures has been around for over 45 years, mainly offering guided canoe trips into Louisiana swamps and bayous surrounding New Orleans. They have expanded the kayak swamp tour eco-tourism industry, and as a result Chimes has become the local kayaking and paddleboard renter center. Lots of folks have already come to take advantage of the service. Here are some pictures.
