Wow, this is up to date - this was today!
Dave Bateman - the Local Coaching Organiser for Birmingham organised a gentle paddle from Arley to Bewdley, and invited all the paddlers in the region. It was basically open to anyone, so I took the family along.
Rozie hadn't been in a kayak for ten years - like riding a bike apparantly!
Here's my boat complete with blonde kids as crew.
Leoni was very impressed with her day out, although she thought Dowles Brook was a bit scary, perhaps I shouldn't have told her about the crocodiles!
