Yesterday, I went kayaking with my friends for the first time and it turned out to be loads of fun! :D Ended up renting 2 double kayaks at English Bay and kayaked around Stanley Park to Siwash Rock and then back to English Bay. I was all paranoid about falling into the water but that didn't happen to me :) I ended up being the person who steered the kayak, and I think I did a pretty good job of it compared to the other kayak *cough* When we first started out, the other kayak was doing alright but then they started to umm... intrude into the swimming area at the beach. A girl in the water ended up asking them if they needed her to push them back out into the ocean LOL! The weather was alright, cloudy yet warm, but halfway through, it started to rain and we were paddling madly to get back to shore. Of course, the 2nd kayak had trouble getting the kayak up to the shoreline ;) One of the very first tips the rental guy told us was to head into the waves, if we went alongside the waves the kayak would tip over easily. They were very close to the shore but had trouble getting the kayak to stay in the sand 'cause they were alongside with the beach and the waves kept on hitting the kayak. One of them had to stick their paddle in the sand to make sure they didn't tip over! LOL It was fun 'though it ended up raining sorta hard and nobody thought to bring an umbrella. So we ended up being wet and soggy as we walked into the nearby Milestone's for dinner 'though I'm slightly sick today from being cold and wet =X
