Misuse of toys when sibbing

Found a new function for water toys when camping on one of the island's previous weekend.
Worked well(at least in calm sea). Light and protects the bottom. Added a couple of other pics too. Most of the island here are like solid rock but some also based on sand.

Post a few pics of the campsite!

Good plan with the swimtoys...

Were you using "pool noodles" as rollers? how much easier did it make it?

An excellent application of pool noodles. They are very handy for a number of applications. I use them to cover the aluminum pins of track rollers I have on my trailer so the fabric bottom doesn't get pinch cuts.

Yes, "pool noodles" was used as rollers. On sand, I would not say its much easier, but they keep the bottom away from grinding against the sand. On a solid surface might also give the roller effect.

Regarding camp site, none specific, this time we put the tents on a as windy spot as possible
to avoid mosquitoes.
