Hello, Just thought I'd follow up on the amazing trip myself and John had back in May. It was a very memorable adventure. You have some great kayaks; I've been telling people over here in Canada about how good there are. Anyway, Here's a link to a short film I made from all the pictures: Thanks again, I hope you have a good summer.
