What we do in the winter, continued…

Jim and his wife, Debbie, paddling on the St. Sebastian River in Florida

Jim Bourke started working for Coastal Kayak in 2007 when he sold his hardware store in Baltimore and moved to the beach. He is a Level 2 ACA Kayak Instructor, a Level 2 ACA Stand Up Paddleboard Instructor, and a fish whisperer.

Jim and Debbie had fantastic plans for this winter. They have a travel trailer and were going to spend most of the winter traveling in the sunny warmth of Florida. A couple of their favorite spots are Melbourne Beach, Bahia Honda, and Flamingo in Everglades National Park.

But Debbie had a nasty, nasty knee lock-up and they had to make a bee line back to Delaware just in time for the coldest weather in a couple of decades – the Polar Vortex. She got in to the doctor quickly so we hope that she can get it taken care of just as quickly and be back in Florida before the next Polar Vortex!
