I looked for one, but could not find anything.

Maybe substitute the closest smiley we already have?

Smile    THE rental outlets for bicycles, kayaks and canoes around here are far too expensive, patchy and inconsistent, and tourist-oriented for anyone who wants to go out regularly ~ especially by the conceivably better standards of costs and services that many people might be used to on the West Coast of the USA, or even over in some parts of Western Europe..

BESIDES which, living further out towards the fringes as I do, I prefer to have 24/7 access to my own modes of both personal transport and "playthings"/exercise equipment ~ hence my personal car ('SUV'), mountain bikes, and now a kayak, and adding a new trailer to this collection later on ~ plus, this is also 'part and parcel' for both lifestyle and sideline business (i.e. my bees..).

AND, AS the Water Rat says in Kenneth Grahame's "The Wind in the Willows" :
"Nice? It's the only thing," said the Water Rat solemnly as he leant forward for his stroke. "Believe me, my young friend, there is nothing—absolute nothing—half so much worth doing as simply messing about in boats. Simply messing," he went on dreamily: "messing—about—in—boats; messing—"

"Look ahead, Rat!" cried the Mole suddenly.

It was too late. The boat struck the bank full tilt. The dreamer, the joyous oarsman, lay on his back at the bottom of the boat, his heels in the air.

"—about in boats—or with boats," the Rat went on composedly, picking himself up with a pleasant laugh. "In or out of 'em, it doesn't matter. Nothing seems really to matter, that's the charm of it. Whether you get away, or whether you don't; whether you arrive at your destination or whether you reach somewhere else, or whether you never get anywhere at all, you're always busy, and you never do anything in particular; and when you've done it there's always something else to do, and you can do it if you like, but you'd much better not. Look here! If you've really nothing else on hand this morning, supposing we drop down the river together, and have a long day of it?"

The Mole waggled his toes from sheer happiness, spread his chest with a sigh of full contentment, and leant back blissfully into the soft cushions. "What a day I'm having!" he said. "Let us start at once!"

Yes, I thought about that later. You live in such a beautiful part of the world. Who wouldn't have a kayak on Lake Macquarie? If I lived next to Lake Tahoe, no doubt I would still have my Perception.

BTW, we have an excellent adventure rental outfit in Sausalito, so it's very professional...not amateurish.
