My girlfriend and I both had the day off work on Tuesday, so we decided to spend the day at a lake close to our hometown of Orland Park, Illinois. The area around Orland Park includes two lakes, but my girlfriend and I are absolutely perfect to spend time at Lake Sedgwick. Lake Sedgewick in Orland Park, Illinois is a great place to canoe or kayak. The lake has great fishing as well as a boat and boat rentals, an outdoor amphitheater, hiking paths, and a large picnic area. I thought the lake was the perfect place to spend the day with my girlfriend. I made a reservation to run a couple of kayaks for a couple of hours. My girlfriend and I plan to spend the afternoon on the water. It was a very warm and sunny day. We spent the morning in our apartment and we had to run the air conditioner most of the time. I thought about canceling the afternoon activity so we could stay home in the air-conditioning and watch a movie. My girlfriend was really excited about spending the day on the water, so we decided to leave the apartment and go to the lake. We had two practically brand new kayaks waiting for us at the lake. The boating guide told the two of us where we could take the boats and we spent the entire afternoon paddling around the lake. Even though it was extremely hot and very humid, we still had a great time on our outing. Next time we decide to go on an outdoor trek, we are going to try a couple of other places that seem like fun.
