Learning to Canoe
Tomorrow we will be going on a canoe trip down the creek so today we went to the lake to work on our canoeing skills. We started the outing with a healthy lunch of sandwiches, fruit and veggies, and cookies. Then we settled in to listen to an educational lecture on life jackets and how to properly use them. Then the real fun began. Before we got the canoes out, we found a small brown snake. We launched the canoes and were off. We learned how to turn and stop and maneuver around objects. With the help of Brian and Vallery, we all gained a sufficient knowledge of how to canoe safely.
