Not for the kayak, oh no.
That colourful little thing has been around the bay a couple of times at this stage.
No, it was more a case of a first outing for the fair maiden of Dun Laoghaire, aka Mrs Raheny.
She’s been around the block a few times all right, but always on terra firma. This was her first time bobbing along on the gentle waves of a fine mild May evening.

Her birthday wet suit fitted her like a second skin, which is fortunate for a wet suit really. Not too many wobbly bits to be squeezed in either. She looked and paddled like a natural.

And she enjoyed the salty taste of the splashes as we went for a 40 minute spin.

A great first outing.
For this maiden on her maiden voyage.
