Every Body
Into The Pool
or
how we beat the conspiracy
We haven't been on the water in weeks. This recent look at the river near my home now looks like this.
The big lake is similarly effected with dangerous shore ice keeping us ashore these past many days. To the rescue comes the beloved pool sessions. Where
some teach.
Many play around.

And some just fall asleep with boredom. For me, it was the first time on the water in quite a while and the first since surgery. I was happy with how things went. I did many rolls, hit an off (other) side roll, sculled well and did a few angel (butterfly) rolls, all with a Euro paddle (as I'd forgotten my sticks). My right shoulder feels it a bit this morning. Next time, I ought to take the a skin on frame.

Paddle safe...

Good to hear you're 'back in the saddle', as they say. Even if it is in the toxic chlorinated environment.
