Foreclosure is the equitable proceeding in which a bank or other secured creditor sells or repossesses a parcel of real property due to the owner's failure to comply with an agreement between the lender and borrower called a "mortgage" or "deed of trust." Commonly, the violation of the mortgage is a default in payment of a promissory note, secured by a lien on the property.

Florida Kayaking

Kayaking on Florida's many lakes, rivers and oceans has become a very popular activity. You can rent kayaks daily, weekly or even by the hour at many locations. Your skill level and degree of adventure will be your guide as to what type of kayaking is right for you and your group.

Types of Kayaks
Ocean- An ocean kayak is a “sit-on” kayak where you actually are sitting on top of the kayak. These kayaks are used mainly to paddle in the ocean, and are very buoyant because there is no interior space for water to be collected as there is in an ocean and river kayak. They handle waves very well, and are ideal for the ocean adventurous person.

Whitewater-A whitewater kayak is a small kayak that is used for riding the rapids. The miniature kayak actually accelerates through whitewater making rapids easier and fun. These kayaks are also used for special tricks. Skilled professionals are able to actually pop in and out of the water with the boats, as well as ride waterfalls. It is easy to maneuver, and simple to flip this boat over, back above the water, if you should tip.

River-A river kayak is your typical kayak. These kayaks are ideal for paddling on rivers, lakes, and ponds. Guided tours are often run with river kayaks because they are the easiest to handle, and the most practical for recreational kayaking.
Try taking a Sea Kayaking Tour to take advantage of Florida's playground! Sea kayaking tours are offered in the Florida Keys & Everglades.
