Toddler photo and kayaking
By bnitz on Jun 04, 2006
My three year old daughter took this photo. She took another one aiming slightly more to the left so you can see me tieing a string to the kite.
You say to-may-to, I say to-mah-to, you say po-tay-to, I say po-tah-to... One of the odd differences between U.S. english and Irish english is that what I call canoeing, they Irish call kayaking and vice-versa. I've never seen this kind of "roller derby" style kayak racing before.
This rubber inflatable Sevylor thing doesn't fit my definition of a canoe or kayak. It uses double-ended kayak paddles, but it's totally open and nearly impossible to capsize unless you puncture a pontoon. The upper Broadmeadows estuary is so shallow that if we were to sink it, we'd just walk home. After 12 years of Florida sunshine and Wisconsin winters, one of the seat pillows developed its first air leak. I read the patch kit instructions and warnings about the kayak. You're supposed to wear a PFD (we always do), and you're not to burn or eat the kayak. Eat it?
