Paddling & More....

The past couple of weeks have flown by and it's hard for me to believe Spring has sprung. We've taken advantage of the warm weather and have been paddling our hearts out.

A couple of weeks ago I was privileged to guide 31 paddlers, most of whom belong to the Sacramento Paddle Pushers, to Franks Tract, Old River and Sandmound Slough. It was an awesome sight to see so many kayaks and one canoe on the water exploring Bethel Island! We started out with flat water but when we reached Franks Tract the wind had picked up and we encountered some good chop which livened things up a bit. We had several yachts pass us by giving a chance to surf for those that dared. We spent several hours exploring and everyone had a great time.

The kids have been on spring break so we spent time kayak fishing and picnicking on sandy Delta islands enjoying some family time.

This past weekend my oldest daughter and I participated in Sierra Rescues' 16 hour Wilderness First Aid and CPR course in Coloma. We are now certified in WFA and CPR. If you are interested in taking one of their courses, I strongly encourage you to check out what they have to offer. Our instructor, Jess, made the class a fun learning experience and we'll definitely return when we need to re-certify.

Be sure and check our calendar as we have some great tours coming up including our Moonlight Paddle on the Delta April 4th. We rescheduled our special Elkhorn Slough tour for May 9th which is a must do paddle if you enjoy lots of wildlife. We also have rentals available with advance notice and we'll even help plan your paddle and drop the boats and gear off for you!
