Great Day of Kayaking!

What a wonderful day to be on the bay kayaking with my Endurance group.  The weather was slightly cloudy with temperatures in the upper sixties: perfect!  We started at Bay Creek in Irondequoit and paddled through the marsh area to get everyone comfortable paddling.  The “campers” did an awesome job and picked up on correct paddling techniques rather quickly.  Two more teachers joined us when we were heading out to Irondequoit Bay, bringing our final count to six tandem kayaks and my three single kayaks.  Some kayak groups tried to make it from the Empire Boulevard bridge to the Bay Bridge in Webster, about 2.5 miles, after having paddled quite a ways in the marsh.  Needless to say, it will take more than the amount of time we had left to make it that far.  The distance is deceiving, but they gave it their best effort and almost made it.  We saw many wild animals, with the nesting white swan being the highlight for me.

About bguzzetta

I am a middle school math and science teacher at Allendale Columbia School. Technology and the outdoors are integral parts of my curriculum. I love outdoor activities, which I enjoy with my family. I have always felt that students should be exposed to global research, and am very excited to be bringing this to my students with the support of school. Therefore, I have embarked on a journey that includes a collaboration between myself, the Seneca Park Zoo, the Smithsonian Institute, and National Geographic's photographer David Liittschwager. Sports have always been part of my life, and I am the current Girls Vice President for the Rochester District Youth Soccer League.
