Another 14

High winds forecasted did not materialize so Dean, Neville and I decided to go for a short paddle today.

It was only 14 kms but it was time in the kayak.  Time in the kayak is essential for skills development whether a person first takes kayak instruction or not.  Everything learned on a kayak course must be repeated until it becomes burned in muscle memory. Without instruction, time in the kayak provides instant feedback on what works and what doesn't.  Some things cannot be taught but have to be learned.  For example, staying calm while getting pushed around in a rock garden.
