    These pics were taken of me at the Nanaimo Paddlers Fun Day. I was determined to master my cowboy re-entry. This is not an easy feat when you have a big butt and a small boat; add bad knees to the mix and you have a challenge! :lol: :lol: :shock: :lol: :lol:

    Believe it or not, this is in the San Juans near Stuart Isle. It looks like some tropical beach somewhere.

    Thanks for the cool pics Dion. Personally, I prefer picture number two! :big_thumb It really demonstrates the precision in the sport. I find it amazing that the hand heights, body angles and everything else are perfectly aligned. I would certainly put that picture up on my wall. :clap: :clap:

    I like this photo that Greg Polkinghorn took of me on Estevan Sound. It was a lovely day.

    Judy and I "sailing" across Glover's Reef in Belize, March 2011. Couldn't find more than a whisper of air; not enough to need to brace once in over 6 km!

    If you saw the weather on the previous days of the trip, you'd understand ;) I think I was mostly just tired from the 40+ mile paddle the previous day.
