Canoe skills

Today we went down to Woodcock Creek Lake to learn how to canoe. The instructor, Chad, showed us how to pick out the right oars, the correct way to paddle, how to get in and out of the canoe, etc. Once we got in the water we canoed down in front of the Woodcock dam and did some practice laps to get the hang of it. It is really a lot easier than it looks. For most of us it was our first experience in a canoe and i thought it was a lot of fun and Chad explained it nicely for us being inexperienced.

Did they teach you that old song that has the lyrics, "Don't rock the boat, baby. Don't tip the boat over"? It looks like you didn't need it, though!
