Definitely one of the fav things about kayaking is teaching it to someone else. My brother's son had never been in one so as I watched his interest in the boats when I got home I asked if he'd be interested in learning. Who wouldn't? Joe did very well and we paddled to Grassy Island after about 2 hours of instruction. The weather was hot. 30 degrees and the water temp favourable. This is Joey paddling near the channel that comes into Canso Harbour.
