Paddling time

» 14 October 2003 » In Bay Area »

So, as mentioned in the previous entry, I went kayaking with a few people on Sunday. We chose Kayak Connection in Moss Landing (Elkhorn Slough), which is about 20 miles from Santa Cruz. The cost was only $30 for up to 4 hours, and you get full gear (paddling jacket, life jacket, spray skirt, etc) with the rental. I kayaked only once before, on the Charles River in Boston, and this was more interesting due to larger waves and more open territory. We also arranged to have our lunch on the water. All in all, a great experience and I hope to repeat it again some time soon. Pictures here.

    absolutely beautiful. i love kayaking and don’t get to do it enough. i haven’t even gone on the charles, and i live very close to boston too. i did go at this little place on the bay in mountain view a few times. it was nice, but the water kinda smelled funny.

    beware of sharks on the open ocean. they like kayakers too. some good information on that at the surfer’s museum in santa cruz.

    I’m not venturing into open ocean yet. Not until I learn how to roll back over or climb into kayak before freezing. 🙂
