Well I guess you can teach old dogs new tricks.
ONE - We "learned" that after the hot Hot days in Jack's Canyon, there's a place to go called Blue Ridge Reservoir where you can jump in and cool off. We'd heard about it, but never wanted to leave camp to drive 15 miles just to get wet.
TWO - The Water can be FUN. After spending a week with family in Priest Lake Idaho, I tried out my brother's new HobiCat Mirage, Paddle Kayak.
Yes, that's it. And what better Palindrome to buy for Kay than (wait for it) a KAYAK ! Not just any kayak mind you. One for the two of us. Partners like always.
