Hello Everyone!

Tonight about half of the girls came out for their first time paddling. We learned a few different strokes. The first one was the power stroke, which is the main one. The second one was the draw stroke. The final stroke we learned was the J-stroke, which is used for steering the canoe. The strokes were taught on dry land, then on the dock with our paddle in the water but no canoe, and then finally we took the canoes out. It was a beautiful day on the water and the girls did great! 

To end the night, we went for a little swim. It was very refreshing after a hot day. 

Pleased with our progress,
