Things to do

Here are a couple of helpful posters for getting back on the water when that happens…  Life Jackets and Buoyancy Aids and Beach Safety Kayaking

But now for something completely different:

“Three old men are paddling in their kayaks on their favourite weir one Sunday morning when a funeral procession drives by. One of the old men takes off his ‘shred ready’ hat and puts it over his heart. The procession winds its way around and disappears over a hill. The old man puts his hat back on and continues paddling. One of the other old timers says "Gee Ed, that was a thoughtful thing to do."Ed replies " It was the least I could do after 49 years of marriage.”

(thanks Stephen for these… You get another random joke every time you refresh this page!)

Water Ball Puzzle (don’t ask what water ball is, we will have to make it up!)

Ken, Kate, and Will got together for a round-robin Water Ball tournament (played in pairs), where, as usual, the winner stays on after each game to play the person who sat out that game. At the end of their Water Ball afternoon, Kate is exhausted, having played the last seven straight games. Ken, who is less winded, tallies up the games played:

Ken played seven games

Kate played 12 games

Will played 14 games

Who won the fourth game against whom?
