LoCo

The Lower Columbia River Kayak Roundup, was a great event again, it was awesome to meet up with some old friends and meet new ones.
My job was mainly to run a L2 Paddlesport Coach course with my great friend Jen Kleck. This is Jen delivering one of the 'classroom' sessions on the sun porch of the Skamokawa Paddle Centre







Most BCU Coaches in the US are primarily sea kayakers, so canoe is not usually their prefered craft, you wouldn't believe that when you see Djuna making this little Bell Yellowstone Solo dance.


It was tough for the coaches though - this is Jean from Florida, grabbing a well earned kip on the beach at the moth of Skamokawa creek, the Paddle Centre is in the background - it's up for sale at the moment, what an awesome venue!



This photo is looking the other way out towards the Columbia River, those huge container ships seem to pass ever so close!!!



Ken coaching, while Djuna makes observations, it's a tough life being a L2 coach in Skamokawa
