This is where I live. No, not in the water, but just the other side of the buildings you see in the background. I went kayaking in the ocean right down the street from my house. This was my first time out there. My daughter surfs there all the time, and kayakers go there all the time, but I have been too chicken until today. It was fun, til I came in. Then a bigger wave caught up with me and pushed my boat over! I got to go swimming! YAY!!! NOT!!! I asked advice from one of the veteran kayakers and he told me, it'll take time, just practice and know that I will get rolled from time to time until I have practiced enough. At least I know now, that I am not the only one. I was a little embarassed. Not anymore. Now I have a new adventure to talk about. It was on my want to do list, so that is good!
