Final day of the kayak BCU two star course and we passed! Well, the three of us left - there were some drop outs.
And one final trial, which was to turn upside down in the kayak yet again into the Thames, escape and swim to shore without loosing either paddle or kayak. Given it was a lovely and warm summer evening that wasn't so bad.
Yesterday was talking to an ex-rower who remembered when he was young drinking the Thames when they got thirsty, in days before water bottles.
Not sure up to that: but on a hot day might be tempted to go for a swim!
