  6. Never thought that the first lesson would be on dry land, but it makes sense.

  7. I wonder if they went in the water that day. It looks like a cold day to chance falling in.

  8. Fascinating shot, Bill. I like how the 'paddlers' are not in sync and that's what usually happens when they get in the water...at least the newbies do... But two people who know what they're doing are great fun to watch.

  9. Always good to learn the fundamentals before you're even on the water.

  10. I would be hopeless at that but, I hear it's very good exercise.

  13. I tried kayaking once, was extremely hard work on the upper part of my body but enjoyable.

  15. Looks cold. I enjoyed kayaking the few times I did it. This summer I learned to stand up paddle board...now that is fun!!

  17. Been there, done that. We donned wet suits and also practiced rolling in the water. That was bracing!

  18. Good colors for the gray water. I've been kayaking once or twice when traveling but you can't do much in the Mississippi's currents.
