December Events in our area…


Happy Holidays Paddlers,
Just some info on upcoming events and possible stocking stuffers.
This Saturday, December 6, Suzie and I  share our sea kayaking experiences in southeast Alaska, using a converted trawler as a base.  While exploring magnificent fjords and the rugged coastline of this splendid wilderness, we saw whales and dolphins and otters.  Bald eagles soared overhead.  At times a pod of seals escorted their kayaks.  We paddled up a tidal rivers, viewed mountains and glaciers and visited a hot springs.  Each night found us warm and comfortable aboard the converted trawler Home Shore as we motored to new adventures daily.  Presentation will start at 4:00 pm.
