Blog Hop: Favorite Kid Photo: Kayaking Wingnut

Wingnut listens to John's instructions

Wingnut follows John down the Blackwater

My grandson Wingnut and I had our first kayaking adventure two weeks ago on the Blackwater River. We paddled 3.4 miles (5.5 km) from Salisbury north and back again. Wingnut and John had a great time. I was busy photographing flowers, ducks, insects and them. What a great day!

I love these photos because Wingnut has a real talent for kayaking (which would not be possible without the swimming lessons he has every summer when he stays with me). He is fast and sure and can navigate his kayak very well. He has the most wonderful role model in John, who is patient and communicates clearly

This is the route of our trip made on Google Earth. You can click on the image to view the trip. You can also click on the KMZ file here to view it on your Google Earth.

  1. I love the idea of kayaking and it's something I've haven't done yet. It's on my bucket list, though. I also think of kids have an aptitude for something like that and a patient teacher, they can pick it up with no problem.
