What great fun! I was on the water just after 1pm. I jumped in before I climbed into the boat. The water is nice. Very nice. Slightly cool.
So I got to practice some skills. Reverse paddling. Self-rescues. Bracing. No skeg. And Paddle Float rolls. About 20 of them and 5 rolls.
After that it was a paddle to Beveridges Lock, Stonehouse Island and back to Rideau Ferry. I spent 3 hours on the water today. It was interesting to watch the weather front slowly move in. The rain held off so the visibility was still excellent.
Finally, the arrival of rain.
