Have Kayaks? Use 'em

This morning three friends and I set out on an unnamed reservoir in our kayaks.  One person had quite a bit of experience--the rest of us, not so much.

Before putting our toe-sies in the water we made a pact--if someone fell out of their kayak we would paddle over to them and extend an oar; they would then grab the oar, hold onto the rescuing kayak, and we would take them over to the shore. We would not jump into the water to save them--understood?  Okay, we're off.

Such high tech times; one of us had to respond to an e-mail during the paddle--crazy?  No, just modern life.

Hardly any other boats on the water during our two-hour paddle.  It was lovely.
