Update from the mountains
Today I kept closer to the cabin, doing a bit of yard work. But, this evening I drove to the Heron Lake Marina and did a bit of kayaking in the cove.
Last weekend I helped teach a New Mexico Boating Safety class in Albuquerque. It's an eight-hour class and has a lot of material crammed into it in order to meet national standards for boater safety education as well as provide some practical information on navigation, rules and requirements, boat handling, and operator responsibility. It's quite of bit of work and takes energy and focus to try to keep a class on track and not running too far behind.
