Love + recyclables = creative parenting
 Coming in from last Sunday's paddle we noticed something going on along the shore. From afar it looked like a happening involving people and a pile of empty bottles. We paddled to the event and found a bare-chested man with his kids and some neighbor kids going onto the water. The kids were having a ball.
I asked him what was up. Turns out that they had collected empty plastic bottles, put them in nets, got a board to act as a floor and made their own boats.
That's hi tech parenting. Take some junk and imagination...and just add water.

Paddle safe...
