I have moved house and I no longer have 'my beach' 5 minutes from home. Now I need to drive at least 30 minutes to get open water. There is flat water 5 minutes from home now but I get bored in flat water so I rather drive.
|"My beach", which is not mine anymore, in a rough day|
After we finished the change of address winter hit our part of the world. As usually happens at this time of the year my kid brought a bug from school. Soon the bug discovered my body to make its house for a couple of weeks...with the side effects for me... ugly weeks.
My attention was also focused in a different kind of paddling lately. I have been leading trips for novices into open water, paddling far from rocks or surf. This kind of paddle gives me a different kind of rewards. Watching transform a face from consternation and almost fear at the beginning to all smiles at the end of the paddle.
|Raft up, a good practice for not forward strokes and confidence to rest in moving waters.|
I will do more of those but I will not abandon the other kind of fun I have on the water.
|White foam and rocks near by, yeah baby!!|
Below is the video that Josh took and compiled from that day:
