Today it was Paula, John and I out for a paddle on Thetis Lake before practicing wet exits with the new Delta kayaks. Here Paula prepares her inflatable kayak while our Delta's rest on the shore.
The lake was busy this fine morning with dog walkers, a running group and these two fishermen heading out in their boat powered by an electric motor. A very cool little contraption.
There was a bit of mist on the lake. Here is Paula enjoying the reflections of the water on the rocks as she heads into the mist.
And John follows Paula...
Lucky for Paula this was not Steven King's movie The Mist and she was completely safe. However, due to mist and sun I wasn't really able to see what I was aiming the camera at and could only aim and click. Surprisingly I captured a rather interesting photo of John!
And another one later where the sun was in my eyes and I just clicked.
We headed off around the bend to see if we could find any turtles.
We didn't find any turtles, but as usual Paula is hanging over her boat looking in the water and discovered what "looked like globs of chewed gum." I thought these were probably buds as they were attached to the water lily stalks.
Finally we headed back from our light paddle to prepare for a dip in the lake.
Here is John just before he flipped over into Thetis Lake and climbed back into his kayak. See his report for the wet exit practice.
