Originally today the yearly "Grootwatertocht/seakayak-clinic" of kayakclub Wyrda was scheduled. Partly because it's still holiday-period, partly because there is only a limited number of seakayak-enthusiasts in the local kayakclub, we ended up with no more than 4 participants: Guus, Paul, Jelle (my son) and I.
Jelle only paddles a few times a year - there are too many other appealing activities for a 15 year-old boy... - it was a pleasure to do so today. Amazing to see him grow. The little kid of only a few years ago now easily picks up with frequent (adult) paddlers. Sprinting side to side he was faster than I was. Does this tells more about me than about him?
A musical intermezzo - a sentimental journey on this father and son issue;-)
