What we did is kayaked over to Snow's Cove over on Pennock and then practiced our maneuvers there under the watchful eyes of two Nigerian pygmy goats (really). On the way back the wind had picked up and it took a little longer to get back, but it was still great fun. I love kayaking! Brian would like to take Whitney to practice some of the techniques we learned, so I'm hoping to get in on that to practice some.
I did wear my new Stohlquist BetSEA PFD, which was AWESOME. I totally love it! It fit perfectly and was extremely comfortable the whole time. It never moved on me and having the fleecey-lined pockets was a nice treat and were warm even when wet from us doing our rolls in the water. I can't wait to get out there and use it more! There was even a perfect place to secure my camera to so I could take pictures while we were out. I seriously love this PFD.
Here's some of the pictures that I took, but you can see them all in this album:
The day started off being warm and sunny, weather-wise, but then got overcast and windy. It was still fairly warm out. After we got back from our class we all headed up to Terry and Gretchen's, where we hung out in the hot tub for two hours and took pictures like these:

And now I am trying to hurriedly type this because I am supposed to go camping with Myurgen (Sunday night)! They just picked me up from Brian's and took me to our friend Stine's house for homemade birthday pizza by her husband Jimbo, who easily ties with Brian for best homemade pizza ever. Seriously, this stuff is amazing! So tonight I'll be camping FINALLY out at Ward Lake, which I haven't camped at in years and year, so that should be pretty fun! Photos to come later! :o)
I hope everyone else is enjoying their Memorial Day weekend! I am actually working today (Monday), so I'm hoping that I got some sleep as I camped last night.
P.S. Today marks one week until I will be in Anchorage visiting my mom! Yeah!!
P.P.S. Maybe I will not be so busy someday and I can totally write a full blog post again, huh? :o)
