It was July 4th and I found myself in a kayak.
Now, I haven’t been in a kayak in…well, years. Since it was the fourth of July, it seemed as though everyone who owned a boat in a 200 mile radius was on the very same lake. And as you can imagine, with all the boats kicking up waves around me, I had to work extra hard not to topple over, and give my friend yet another reason to laugh at me.
As I was figuring out the best method to stay inside the boat, I found that if I kept my paddle even; rapidly dipping one side to the right and then dipping it to the left, I would be able to keep going in the right direction. (I know this is probably basic kayak knowledge but it was revolutionary to me)
