Out paddling in the rain last night. It's really a peaceful time to be on the lake, the jet skis and speed boats all seem to disappear, you get the whole lake to play on. I didn't use the whole lake, but I did head out into areas that would normally be "danger zone" to a lone kayaker on a sunny weekend. The lakes are warming up quickly, the dry suit is no longer needed here in the city lakes, even a wet suit is going to be to much for a afternoon paddle. After a short workout paddle I spent some time working on rolls, the "storm roll" has been a hard one for me for a long time, after some coaching by Ron S over the weekend, I was able to hit it a couple times. Then last night it started working real well. Its odd how once you figure it out, it then seems so easy. So many things in life are like that, not just rolling. It's to bad so many of life's lessons aren't as easy to learn as a simple "storm roll".
