ACA Success and Geezers Go North

We're reporting this morning from rainy Pawley's Island, SC. Al finished up with his Level 3 Coastal Kayak Instructor training yesterday, while Mike packed up the trailer. We headed north out of Florida after the class concluded, soaking in a last bit of Florida sun.

It was a successful run of five days (four for Mike), but we're feeling pretty beat up. On day 5, Al played "rescue bait" for the other students, his penalty for bringing a dry suit. Doing rescues in a 4 kt. current and waves was fun!

Big Mike to the Rescue

The night was spent in a cheap motel and we'll set up camp at Myrtle Beach State Park today where the temp now is 44.6 degrees, the forecast high for today, yikes! Our pants and shoes may have to come out of storage. I'm sure that all you Northerners feel our pain.


  1. It's a lot easier to be the rescuER than the RescuEE!

  2. It's good to know you know how to do one of these kayak-to-kayak rescues - you never know when I might be needing one, too! I can't wait to hear you and Al tell of your many adventures. In the meantime, enjoy the remainder of your trip and have a same journey back home. See you back in Voorheesville.
