Mike on the Green, Headwoks. This was shortly after we all surfed a wave, which was awesome, my first surf.
Mike is great teacher. On this trip I was feeling a little squirrely. I got out twice. I need to relax. Some times when splashing through waves, I look up from my bow and Mike is facing backwards to rapid, talking to me.
Roll practice with Mike was really helpfully. A confidence booster for sure.
Today I paddled the cedar river with friends and friends of friends. We started Landsburg and ended up in Maple Valley. The rapids not so tough (class II+) but, right of the start are some man made rapids with slalom gates.
This being my first time in a river, I flipped the kayak right away, rolled up, went down some more and found and eddy. My first combat roll was shortly followed by my second. Then later, a T-rescue and eventually I swam... at the take out.
We rounded out the day with home made pizza and sauna. Fantastic!
Latte art during shift is improving. It has reached the point of latte art while playing around with late art from a few months ago. These are all drinks I served this morning the one in the paper cup being soy. The trouble is, when I produce really good stuff, it's to busy for the camera. Still, you will see bubbles, inconsistency, asymmetry and generally it's just not quite there.
