Gregg foregoes water.
Ellen gets rejected.
Considering entering the caves.
So many helpful hands to coach and support.
Lee is used to river running, where the waves stay put; he had to work on moving on faith in the water.
Bill, John, Ellen
Looking back through the keyhole
Through to the other side and wide open vistas.
Though we had a late start, we caught up easily with the main group.
He started getting it.
Tony on a perfectly timed pourover run.
The Coast of Jenner, with "breadcrumbs" of photos taken that day.
Gregg stayed outside to guide and advise.
I'm calling this one Shark Fin Rock.
Colorful boats on the beach
Dörte in one of the few long boats on the trip.
Susan in Bill's Hammer
Johnnie & Ken in a confab.
Looking back through.
Nearly no need to time passing through.
Tries again, with water.
Ellen makes it, this time. (later, she'll say bye-bye to that bow)
A perfect day, with hospitable seas, a peek-a-boo sun, and lots of fun and support.
Finally, Gregg comes through.
Gwenn works his way through
Lee comes through the arch.
The fog settled in.
Susan, Jay, Steyn
Even Mike was there in his custom gimme cap visor.
Another clown car moment.
Billy foregoes his boat.
We make our way through the fog back to the beach, and beer, and story-telling.
Krista and her shiny new paddle
A few warily back their way in.
Ellen's boat suffered an Owee.
Bill & Gregg in a ballet on the water.
Johnnie, Tony, Steyn
Clown Car Arch
Fluffy surf launch conditions.
