Maiden Voyages

The Adventurer, Vernon Wade

Saturday Amy and I went up to Kingsley Reservoir to try out the Kayak I just bought. My brother and his wife met us up there. I gave Andy my old kayak which had been mauled by a bear. This was is first time on the water since he patched it. They had stopped at Walmart and bought Susan a kayak on the way up, so this was her maiden voyage as well, just minutes after purchase.
