Re: If anyone is interested in lessons this season

Hi John
I'd be on board for a small group, I have reasonably good paddle technique, but I usually stay away from the rough water when ever possible. I have a dry suit / wet suit, so May June is okay.

Sitting with a friend on Sandy Neck Beach today, we watched a spout of water moving up the beach maybe a 1/2 mile out, thought we saw a wake at one time, but never the whale.

I definitely will not be camping on Friday night, and Saturday night looks to be in doubt as well. I will post tomorrow night whether I can make it on Saturday, just in case some one else wants my spot; but Friday is open.

I'll be there on Friday afternoon, if I can get out of work, otherwise I'll show up on Saturday with my own food: and if that's the case maybe they'll let me stay over Sunday night too. I'm not sure how that works, ether way I'll let everyone know next week, when I find out.
