Over Labor Day weekend, Tom invited my kayaking buddies to join him to paddle this last short section. I hadn't paddled with the group for over a year, so it was fun catching up.

When I got home, I rinsed all of my electronics in fresh water, to get rid of the salt water. The next day as I unpacked the dry box with the cables and power blocks I use for recharging when camping, I noticed the screw cap from the RePlayXD Mini video camera. Oh dear! Not only did I forget to turn on the video camera, I forgot to make it waterproof with it's o-ring and screw-on lid! In a panic I found the camera and placed it in a bag of rice hoping it might dry out. Amazingly, the next day the camera worked fine! Now that is one little rugged video camera!
My kayaking friends mean so much to me. We have shared years of kayaking adventures. Karen and Anne even went to Guatemala with me to help out at Safe Passage. Karen involved the students from her school. I went and talked with them about Safe Passage before we left. Karen sent them updates everyday so they could learn bout what it's like for students their age to live in a garbage dump community in Guatemala and become the first in their families to attend school. We could tell how engaged the children were from the great questions they were asking. They raised money for the children in Guatemala. You never know how sharing the story of Safe Passage is going to affect others, and how that helps the children at Safe Passage.
