I had the pleasure of observing the last night’s sunset on the coast with friends.

It was a warm, peaceful, beautiful evening.

I had an Open Deck Kayak lesson out in the Pacific Ocean a couple of weeks ago. I have to tell you it was quite scary and exhilarating at the same time.
My first thought when we were paddling out beyond the buoy was, ” I’m not at the top of the food chain out here!”
We started the morning gray and overcast as we paddled south toward Capitola.
I started out with a longer Red Kayak but was having difficulty steering it even employing the Rutter so in the middle of ocean the instructor and I with the help of my friend Dali made a switch. Marc and Dali pulled up on either side of me, Dali and Marc held my kayak steady and I slid over to this kayak that Marc was in then once I was in I held the kayak for Marc and he slid into the Red one. What a feat!
No one got wet either.

We nearly made it to Capitola before turning around and coming here. As you see the sky was clearing up by this time. From here we headed back to the harbor and the end of the adventure.
I like the closed deck kayak better now that I’ve tried both.
