  1. Many years ago I was married to a marine biologist, and we lived at a lab at Friday Harbor in Puget Sound, WA. We used to fish for tomorrow’s dinner each evening after dinner! I would row a rowboat, and my husband would do the fishing. It was great exercise then, but I’d probably be swallowed up by a ferry boat before I got across the harbor now!


    1. Yes, I remember sailing and rowing and canoeing and swimming. I’m very glad I did it while I could. I never imagined there would come a time when I could not do it anymore. It’s good to have the memories, though, isn’t it?


  2. Nice wordplay! – but i must be slipping in my old age as it took me until the last comment to realise you were talking about recreation, not re-creation! πŸ™‚

    Which one is you and which one is Garry?? πŸ˜‰



    1. I was just playing with words. Recreation is where we re create ourselves. Word play.

      All the photographs have signatures. Garry’s say “Garry Armstrong.” Bet you know what mine say!


    1. Yes, and I have been told that it’s a great study of dynamics in action … where you have to dip the oar move the kayak against the current. I would never have thought of it that way, but the guy explaining it was a mathematician πŸ™‚

  3. How fun! All the photos are fantastically fun. πŸ™‚ I would love to try kayaking. We don’t have a lot of places to do that here in Utah. Thanks for joining the challenge, Garry & Marilyn!
