Dear Friends invited us to join them for a day of kayaking. It was sooo much fun. We launched at the Newport Aquatic Club (doesn't that sound shi-shi?!?) and kayaked our way thru the back bay on out to Balboa Island where we enjoyed ice cream - lunch of the champions!! And then we returned (I was so very glad the tide/current was going our way, cause my arms were DONE, and I'm hurtin' even as I'm typin').
