Peter paddling solo, sans Linda. Unfortunately she had to work so he was forced to use nondescript inert ballast to level the darn canoe. The good news is that she will be returning to Canes events soon and none too soon either. Peter can get awfully rowdy when she's not around to reign him in. - added by Ray

My traveling companion stayed with me for at least 15 minutes while I paddled downstream. He,she,it didn't seem to mind the rhythmic motion of my wrist. Finally, it had enough of my picture taking and bid me adieu. - added by Ray
