Just before reaching my wife and daughter I took a spectacular spill into the rocks, almost breaking my ankle and bouncing off a larger boulder with my rib cage...good thing I was wearing a life vest
As I skidded into the scene I did a quick butt pirouette, faced the camera and said, "I'm okay! Say ta-daaaa
Sure felt dumb though...it would have been a looooong painful ride of shame home if anything would have snapped besides the shutter
(Funny how I would never have done that move while sea kayaking because of the risk factor & the time/effort it would have taken to get home with an injury...a good reminder to remain cognizant of the wilderness aspect of boating, despite how comfy things are).
Hey John...seems you found the Spirit Bear guide in Hartley Bay?
