Still in DC,
but I hope to be on the water later this week. During the week prior to leaving, I was working on my forward stroke for the 1,000,000th or so time. I had watched Lawry's old DVD (he is one of the most innovative teachers around) and (I don't know I have missed it all this time) picked up on the concept of the top hand moving in a L shape.

Down as the blade captures,then straight across to propel. I spent all my free time on the river (waiting to teach) practicing this and was getting into a groovy groove that moved the boat nicely. Hope it is still there when I return.

BTW: I commit to getting back to doing some decent photography and sharing it in the near future.

Paddle safe...
