Here's a picture from last Sunday when I was kayaking.
One of the other paddlers snapped this picture of the group while we were resting near the shore, on a cookie break.
That's me in the blue vest bobbing up and down in my new kayak.
I didn't bother using my rudder last week but I'll probably give it a try next time. It'll be interesting to see how much of a difference it makes. Normally you don't need one in good weather but when the wind picks up it can really make a huge difference.
