Life is a battle, if you don't know how to defend yourself then you'll end up being a loser. So, better take any challenges as your stepping stone to become a better person. Have fun, explore and make a lot of memories.

You're lucky to have got to Green Island to kayak! When I was there a few years ago in November, it was impossible to find any boats to paddle, everything having closed for the 'winter'! Enjoyed your posting! Cheers!

From the photos it would seem as though you struggled through some touch terrain and not much paddling.

Where about's in Australia? Were you up near Cairns?

Hello,

I am digging the book. I double ordered it by accident, one from you and one from amazon. Anyway, no loss as I am giving the hardcover to my friends Larry and Sarah.

After checking out: http://www.buffalonews.com/apps/pbcs.dll/gallery?Site=BN&Date=20130302&Category=PHOTOGALLERIES&ArtNo=302009999&Ref=PH
I wonder just what's the big deal with polar bears? I think I could handle that with nought but a finely tuned paddle.

I am intrigued with Birka, this trading center on an island in Maleren and certainly wished that I could have joined you for the trip and exploration. It sets my imagination i motion, visualizing the people in their hand woven clothes, their jewelery, looking stylish, keeping warm and trading goods from near and far!

If someone wants a shorter kayak journey to Blake Island, there is a launch point next to the ferry terminal on the north end of Vashon Island.

"Short journey by kayak?" Isn't Golden Gardens to Blake Island 20+ miles round trip? Considering some of the places you've been in your kayak, I guess that is a "short" trip. ;-)

tonyf... yes, "Cockleshell Heroes" says a lot about the early WW2 military kayaks, which were used for a number of actions in different countries.
The "Shetland" kayak is almost certainly pre-war and shows major differences from the military-purposed examples. It's use for kayak training for Norwegian resistance fighters would have been simply using what was readily available.
(For those who haven't read the book tonyf suggests, here are a couple of links to learn more about the "Cockleshells".

Bulkheads, like hatchcovers in kayaks are not new - well over a hundred years of such devices.
Quentin Rees's book "Cockleshell Canoes" says all there is to be said about British military canoes - the submersible canoe was known as the "Sleeping Beauty" or MSC (Motor Submersible Canoe).
The canoe in the photo with this article does not appear to be a military canoe
