Took the course See Kayaking II today with Benton at California Canoe and Kayak and it kicked me. I was the first to capsize - about 30 minutes into the course. Thankfully, the water in Oakland's Estuary was warm today. At the end of the course we all practiced falling out of and getting back into our boats, in choppy waters. I felt like a waterlogged walrus with my wetsuit.
I'm ready for whatever the sea brings me. But for now I'm at Julei's Cafe in Alameda having my favorite comfort beverage - roobios chai latte.
