I finally tried kayaking. It was a few weeks ago, but I was on some sort of blogging hiatus and today I finally remembered to ask permission to post a photo. That's me on the far right.
Thanks to Brian for the use of the photo and also for giving me instructions to get out of a very tricky place that another newbie pushed me into. Oh yeah, and thanks for helping me after I rolled over too. Even that part of it was fun, surprisingly.
The reason I hadn't tried it before this is because I avoided most water sports because I didn't know how to swim. A few years ago I started taking lessons at the Y. I already knew the mechanics, but I had a fear of deep water. That can happen when a child is always told that if they go into water over their head, they will drown. Oy. Anyway, I really liked it and hope to do more of it this summer.
