The weather is warming up.  The sun was out yesterday and people were playing on the beach. I think I got a tan on my face! I went out in the afternoon just to roll and mess around. Working on my closed fist roll (assak peqillugu nerfallaallugu) and my off side hand roll. Since I've started to pay attention to how many points the rolls are worth it has influenced which roll I want to learn next! I used to try for which ever next roll looked the coolest, but now I go for the points.

Ted Henry and Holly (of Sound Area Wooden Kayakers) dropped by briefly to look at my Shooting Star in Progress. They were looking at houses in the area but brought their kayaks along too.  I thought I was bad but these people just can't leave their kayaks at home! Actually their kayaks are probably the best strippers I've ever seen -- excellent craftsmanship and real works of art -- so can you blame them? I got some good building tips from Ted, then spent a few hours until late last night laying fiberglass and applying the wet-out coat of epoxy on the interior of the hull. It turned out OK -- a few drips here and there but at places where no one will ever look, and no bubbles or wrinkles or anything serious.
