Maybe their message is getting across
as I’m seeing people here at home base actually wearing PFDs. Never saw that last summer.
The most promising new paddler is a little kid in a bright yellow kid’s kayak. Paddling alone (wearing a PFD of course) but the parents are a watchful 150 feet nearby in their power boat.
Next time I see that little kayak, maybe I’ll ask if he/she would be my paddling partner for a while.

Excellent advice given. I hope it’s taken.
