Busy Weekend
Been busy this past few days (hence, no blog...but I digress). It was dynamite weather, although I still wore a dry suit both days. Let me tell you about Sunday first.

The IDW class came to our beach to do some on water tweaking of their teaching techniques. Our own JB was first chair and was being mentored by Sam Crowley (he of the bandy legs in the pic above) who is about to do a circumnavigation of Ireland. Visit his site for good inside info and some Irish humor.
Again, on Sunday morning, we saw the return of Leslie to the water. Having healed from extensive surgery, she looked like she hadn't missed a day as she paddled inside the wall. No, she didn't play her accordian for us.

And last, and certainly not least, we returned from our Sunday morning paddle to find Sherri (sorry no picture) policing the beach area. She, too, has recently had surgery, and it was great to see her up, about and out. Sherri has been a mainstay of the kayaking community as long as anyone (in spite of her youth). All in all, it was like a family reunion.

Tomorrow, a report on Saturday.

Paddle safe...

What a great weekend!!!!

It was really exciting to see so many sea kayakers at South Shore yesterday--There must have been close to 20 putting in at 0900!

With the IDW (Instructor Development Workshop) we did a lot of rescue teaching and demonstrating, that drew quite a crowd on-shore.
