On Sunday, May 7th, after a delay for a blustery Saturday, the kayakers, and a few stand-up paddlers,  took off for a great day of paddling.    Everyone had a great time. As always there are some great prizes, thanks to all that donated.  But there can only be one winner; I just hope she didn't add that King of Hearts to her hand!

But, of course, all the yakers won a fabulous day out.  Check out the photos below.  Click on them to make them full size.
