It’s Catrina here and I’m sorry that I haven’t posted for a while – we’ve all been at school, work and we’ve all just been enjoying the new boards and canoes. 🙂
THE FIRST TIME I WENT ON A CEDER STRIP PADDLE-BOARD:
I was coming home from school and my dad was paddling towards me. I was wearing my school sports uniform so my dad came to the edge of the dock and he stepped off and I stepped on.
I was not very nervous at first so I got on and pushed the dock so I’d float into the middle of the water. I admit it was a bit wobbly at first but it was extremely easy to get the hang of. I paddled up and down and the board was really fast and streamline. I got so relaxed and used to the board so I actually tried some yoga moves! I never fell in and the boards were so easy to turn and manoeuvre. It was swift and turned so easily that I never actually crashed into anything! :p
THE FIRST TIME I WENT ON A CEDAR STRIP CANOE:
It was quite a windy day and I went on with one of my neighbours – the daughter of Martin, the man who bought the first canoe and paddle board – and we had both never tried to go on a canoe like this before. It was extremely fun and we weren’t amazing at canoeing so we just went around the marina. We ALMOST crashed but luckily we didn’t!
THE SECOND TIME I WENT ON A CEDAR STRIP CANOE:
The second time was A LOT easier. It wasn’t as windy and the turns were easy and the canoe was very fast. It was SO fun and I’m looking forward to going on it again tomorrow as well as the paddle boards!
Honestly, I thought that I’d like the paddle boards much better than the canoes but I actually really like the canoe as well!!!
