Kayak Club Outing

A few kayakers were out while we were in Ballard.  One group appeared to be either a club or a training course.  Most of them were in identical looking kayaks while they seemed to be escorted by a pair of kayakers in more professional looking rigs.  They did not go into the lock but came to check it out before heading back in the opposite direction.

Another pair came from the direction of Lake Union and were heading towards Puget Sound.  They did take a ride through the lock.  Since they did not have ropes to tie off during the lowering of the water, they hung on to one of the other boats as the water level was lowered before paddling out of the lock and on their way.  I imagine being at the bottom of the lock in a kayak is quite intimidating but they seemed like seasoned users.

Late Night Paddle Boarding

AU0E4490.jpgOne evening on Coronado I wanted to get some shots of the San Diego skyline when it was illuminated. As I was walking along the water, a group of people came paddle boarding by in the dark. With the water calm and nothing much moving in the bay, it seemed like a pretty cool thing to be doing just gliding through at your own pace watching the city drift by. Hope that they had a good time!
