Grand daughters first boat trip
« on: August 20, 2016, 12:14:42 PM »
Ella is 3 years old and we weren't sure how she would react. I gave the silver queen to her parents and her dad was excited to introduce her to the water. It was a rip-roaring success. we paddles for about an hour and a half with no issues. I think I had as much fun as she did. I took a few pics.

As we launched

We are getting rave reviews of our trip. We look forward to our next one. It's easy to make it all about someone just getting started and excited for adventure.
