The paddleboard lesson

There is a small beach at the Park de la Pointe Taylor in New Richmond, Gaspésie. In the summer, it is a very popular spot because the shallow water is warm and, moreover, it overlooks the Baie des Chaleurs, offering a breathtaking maritime landscape. Outdoor enthusiasts : paddle boarding, swimming, etc., gather here all summer long.

I will always remember a scene, even if it was not visible to me, even if it was unknown to me. It must have taken place far in front of me, in the open sea in the bay which, at low tide, seems to stretch out to be lost in the distance.

I thought there must have been about five children in the water, up to their knees or so, clustered tightly around an adult who may or may not have been floating on the surface of the water, but I still can’t describe exactly what was going on.
