Our friend Jeremy invited Evan to go ocean kayaking at Avila Beach on Monday. Evan was excited to go. He had been kayaking one time before with Jeremy when he was in Boy Scouts. Evan is not a swimmer, so of course he had on a life jacket as there is always the chance of a tip over.
Out to San Luis Bay they go smooth as silk. They went out past Harford Pier near Whale Rock where they saw lots of cute sea otters.
Doesn't that look relaxing.
Time to come back in.
Oh man, a tip over into the cold ocean water! I am so glad that Jeremy is strong.
(Please forgive my shaky video-photography. Our other friends Jim and Jordan happened to be a the beach too, and borrowed one of Jeremy's kayaks. They are first to come in on this video. They made it safe coming in but had tipped going out. Little Jordan had to be coached to get right back on. I am glad he did!)
This picture just seems to say, "Wow, I can't believe that happened".
Evan came up with a smile on his face!! We helped dry him off and sat in the warm sun for a while. Then guess what!! They went out again!! And they tipped again coming back in!!
Later at dinner, we had the following conversation.
Me: Wow, Evan you must really trust Jeremy to go out kayaking with him.
Evan: Of course!! Jeremy is my friend and friends trust friends!!
Thanks, Jeremy, I am so glad you are Evan's friend and he can trust you! We trust you too!!
