Huntington Beach was just beautiful today. Weather was warm but not too bad, in the low 80's. Had a great time once again with the group. Marc our leader asked if Frank and I would volunteer to help today. Frank was in the middle and I was in the back of the pack. There was around 35 kayak's in our group. I was with the two who had never done it b/4. Took the young lady Jai close to an hour to really get the hang of it. I think she was nervous because she doesn't know how to swim. Yes, she had the life preserver on but she was very unsure of herself. Only had one scare at the main waterway when a large boat was coming our way, telling her to paddle out of the way and go behind it. Instead she went in front, they blew their horn and turned out the boat was a lifeguard boat. Thanks goodness the regular boaters in the area area aware of kayak's and know that some do not know what the hell they are doing.
We went out to lunch just down to the street with march and a group of about 10 people. Was very pleasant and talked about Marc's upcoming kayaking tour he is doing on the Green River in Utah. Wish I could do something like this but don't have the money or equipment and I would be pretty nervous if something happen to me being on blood thinners way out in the middle of no-way land.
Came home and went through a couple of old boxes of pictures. Realized I really need to get these organized someday??? Anybody have some idea's on where to start? Help, I could use some suggestions on getting all these photos organized. I told Eleanor that I would look for the pictures of Gordon that I was sure I still had and I do. Some are from our wedding and reception others just random over the years, couldn't find the one's from Samra's graduation anywhere. Oh well, but I think she would enjoy having them more than me and I know my husband would like to have them gone.
