Now at last it was time for some Winter sunshine.
First stop was the Sweetwater Kayak Symposium in St. Pete's, Tampa Bay.
This was the third time I'd attended this event, and as always it was awesome!
We went paddling in stunning sunshine is the Gulf of Mexico.
There's some big boats out there!
I ran a Level 1, a Level 2 assessment and a three star canoe.
How cool - you can buy a huge bottle of Tequila, shaped like a carbine!
Many thanks to my 'brother from another mother' Russell Farrow, for inviting me again, and organising such a cool symposium!
Check it out next year!
