Re: Better late than neve

Well, something as silly as these stories could never happen to an experienced paddler such as myself.
Two years back dear wife and I were paddling our LTs into a beach near our summer house. A line of small waves came in just as I was fixin' to get out. One wave cought me a bit off balance and, having the paddle down in the sand for stability in my exit, I couldn't brace quickly to prevent a roll. The kayak slowly edged away from the paddle until, well, let's just say I didn't like that camera very much anyway before it got dunked.
The thing is, dear wife was a few feet away and could have easily rendered assistance, were she not nearly doubled up with laughter.
Not my most gradeful moment in a kayak.
