Learning, Enjoying, Exercising.

Well it has been a very good 112 days.

It that time I was at the cottage in Fisher's Glen. I kayak/tripped for 3 nights at Doe Lake. And in early October, I had an overniter at my son's in London.

Of course, the kayak project recently was taken to the next level by the performance of two kayak rolls ... the first one on Oct. 16 and the second on the 18th.
All the rolls on the 20th were paddle float rolls, but they are extremely important and necessary to the production of technically correct rolls.

In short, the path of having fun and learning continues.

Of course the acquisition of the dry suit has extended my paddling season until the freeze up occurs. This is also a very significant learning opportunity. Cold water activity deserves the utmost respect and consideration. None the less, my three dry suit activities have been successful water lessons for me.
I am grateful for the fun and learning.
Freya Hoffmeister is on day 42 of her kayak circumference of South America.
And not so long ago Aleksander Doba of Police, Poland, kayaked from Dakar, Africa to Florida U.S.A.
He accomplished that historical feat in 99 days. He was also 65 years old when he did it!
I am humbled by Freya and Aleksander, and I also am very much inspired by their outstanding achievements.
