Perfect Day For a Paddle

It was a beautiful sunny day out today and a perfect time to try out a new hobby. That's exactly what ten residents of Martinsville & Henry County did as they took a beginner kayak course offered by the Dan River Basin Association, Henry County Parks & Recreation, and Martinsville Leisure Services.
Instructor Eric Juday of the American Canoe Association led the participants step by step as they learned about the types of boats available, fitting for PFDs (Personal Flotation Devices), getting in and out of kayaks, and basic paddle strokes.To see more photos from today's class, visit the Dan River Basin Association's photo album on Facebook.
