Doing two trips in one weekend is always inviting a disaster at home for the next few days. In addition this time, my body felt totally beaten up by the end of the weekend. Apparently paddling upstream for an afternoon and then rock climbing as if I were in practice is a bit more than my body felt like volunteering.

Photos are posted for kayaking saturday and rock climbing sunday. The photos from kayaking are rather blurry. It looks like the water repelling finish on the lense may have worn off. Does anyone know how to fix that?

Nobody else from the kayaking trip took pictures, but they did post their summaries on the group forum. Apparently we are considered fairly good paddlers. I knew we were giving some tips to the other two, but I still feel like a newbie. After all we only started sea kayaking three years ago. It is quite the comparison to white water kayaking where in 6 years I couldn’t progress beyond newbie. That was one of my reasons for switching to sea kayaking.
