#700
It Was A Good Weekend
I taught in Madison on Saturday and managed to get in everything before thunder chased us all off the pond. Woody and Janet took on all challenges and accomplished every aspect of the intro to sea kayaking course. They were of good humor and more than willing to learn. Hopefully, we have two new and safe paddlers.
Hot Item: It used to be serious when a couple held hands. Then came the generation that moved in together. O.K. I can live with all of that. When they start test paddling kayaks together, it's time to buy that girl a ring. Actually, Alan and Laurel will become legal tandems next month, and we couldn't be happier for them. It does appear, however, that they are each of strong will, and each will paddle their own boat. Many happy years together.
(Anyone know what is up with Wendy K's blog site?)

Paddle safe...

Thanks, Suzette. How old is your son? Does he paddle? Be sure to let us know if you and your family are ever headed this way. We recommend summer time or fall.

Thanks for the kind words. On our first date, Laurel pulled up in a RAV4 with a kayak rack and I was smitten. It was good to see you and John yesterday and join in for coffee. Any time you want to paddle the Aquanaut, let me know.
