Julie gets a kayak ride

Julie was "rescued" from the other side of the estuary by this very helpful man, who you see in this photo shoving off to take Julie back across the estuary.

How did Julie find a kayak and man to take her back? On the side of the estuary mouth near where our condo is located is the Barcelo Resort, and this man is one of the lifeguards of the resort.

He saw Julie standing on the other side of the estuary by herself, not wanting to swim or wade back across. So he got into one of the nearby kayaks and paddled across to pick her up. Julie is a very self-confident, type-A personality professional, but she is not above taking advantage of being a 6-foot (1.83 meters) tall blonde and accepting the assistance of kind people in situations such as this.

After Julie got in the kayak, what do you think she did next? Answer tomorrow.

That lifeguard, what a hero. I love the way you've played out this story, Dave. Can't wait for the next installment.

Very resourceful indeed.

Kissed the lifeguard; no, not within your field of vision! Perhaps she took over and manuevered the kayak?

Dave, even I do not remember what I did net. I was very grateful to get a kayak ride though. The water was coming in with high waves for high tide. it was a strong current from the ocean into the estuary. I can only imagine what this lifeguard must have thought, hmmm, don't people know that high tide comes in and they should pick their afternoon and sunset spot on the sand more carefully?

I knew there was a reason I liked Julie (other than her beautiful blog I mean)! I'm not blonde but I am tall--5'10".
