    At the age of 50 I thought I was being adventurous by taking sea kayaking lessons (until I met a woman in her 70ís who had also just recently decided to give it a whirl). I havenít become an expert but since taking those lessons I now have the skills to be able to evaluate water and weather conditions and to rescue myself if I have to. And this has lead to a whole new range of kayak experiences in Canada, Mexico and Panamaís Kuna Islands that I would never have had before. - A. Dean
