Kanoes, I was alternately frustrated and angry. I was afraid someone would drown and really ruin our trip, and really angry that anyone could be that stupid.

I would hate to watch that and not be able to do anything. At least they all finally got to shore and you were there to help the boy. I hope they learned some things from that experience.

Thanks for the report! It reminds me to pay attention, wear life jackets and don't paddle when you should stay on shore... their stupidity could have cost them their lives.....and messed up your trip.;-(

I guess "Stupid is as stupid does" applies?? So glad all turned out fine.
