The Healing Has Begun
After the experiences of the past few months I came up to the Door County Sea Kayak
Symposium with my main man, JB. There I met up with Sherri, Jeff, Robin, Kelly and a whole bunch of kayaking colleagues from around the Midwest. My schedule turned out to be ideal. Nancy, (Da Boss) was kind to me.
Friday morning I taught a forward stroke class with master Danny Mongo...from Werner Paddles...and we danced...and the students improved before my eyes.
Friday after noon and Saturday am I taught a progressive boat control course and, again, I saw remarkable progress among the students. Saturday afternoon I taught rolling. 2 of the 3 hit rolls in the first half hour.
Sunday morning was for surf which didn't occur, but Danny, Sherri and I put together a land and on water presentation with great results. In the afternoon I did a one on one rescue lesson that went well.
Being back in the game and among wonderful people (and no caffeine) has had a huge effect on my health, both physical and mental. I am grateful for that and for the kind support of those in my life. I am blessed.
Now, onto Great Lakes Sea Kayak Symposium and cold water.
