We're still moving a few posts from our old site over here...this one was from way back - originally posted on March 6th, 2010. This was right when we got our first kayak and way before we moved aboard Kingsley. Did we know what we were talking about? Barely! It's fun to look back even a couple of years and see how far we've paddled and how much we've learned!
Good Saturday to everyone,
This morning Amber had a dentist appointment...her dentist just happens to be on the waterfront, just minutes from a popular Seattle beach on the Puget Sound - Golden Gardens. This also turned out to be a great place to launch the kayak for a couple hours of paddling...which turned into a couple hours of just sitting and watching all of the boats.
According to a dude on the beach, every Saturday morning there is a sweet sailboat race going on out in the Sound. Lots of folks come to the beach to sit and watch the sailboats rounding the green buoy, turning back South towards downtown and the Elliot Bay marina (I'm guessing where another other buoy is). Hmmm...does the Yacht Club of Seattle put this on? Here is a link just in case: http://www.seattleyachtclub.org.
The best part about the inflatable kayaks we have is that it is so easy to pack them up and throw them into the trunk of a car. I've got my setup down to about 10 minutes - it's really about inflating the thing, putting the four-part oar together, and putting the leftover gear in the backpack.
So, off I went, heading out towards the green buoy, snapping photos like crazy.
