Overland Adventures joined us for a phenomenal day at the mouth of the Winooski. We had a paddle over a half-mile out to find deep enough water to splash and play. These kids kayak programs are such a joy because you can watch the innate ability of young paddlers be totally at ease with being upside down and rescue them selves without even knowing it.
Paddled with fourteen kids today. Trip leaders Ariel and Red were so much fun to work with again. Their group clearly had become tightly knit and were really enjoying the ride to Montreal. We saw Bald Eagle, Green Heron, Black Capped Night Heron, Great Heron, Tern and Osprey. It was an amazing sight for all. We worked on communication, cooperation and even silent paddling while also having a blast trying to Eskimo Kiss our kayaks and self rescue.
