I'm certifiable...

I mean, I am I'm certified. Early in March my husband and I flew down Tybee Island, near Savanah, Georgia to get some kayak training. It was on of the most difficult, exhausting, challenging and fun things we've done.

We took our classes and tests (yes two of them), at Sea Kayak Georgia. Our instructor and the owner Ronnie Kemp was professional, a great teacher and made the week fun.

Our plan was to get our ACA skills assessment level 2, so that we would be allowed to kayak at the new kayak club in our neighborhood, the North Brooklyn Boat Club.  Since they are on Newtown Creek and under strict scrutiny by the DEC, they want all kayakers to be at least level2.

Once we were down there and started talking to Ronnie, he realized by adding just one more day, we could become certified Trip Leaders as well.  Which we did.

So we're proud to say we passed both test and had a great time, too.

  1. wonderful--but really--doing anything in the Newtown Creek sounds dreadful! I know there are plans a foot to clean it up.. but until then...Yuck!
