Meditation paddle on the Napa River

Hello sangha.  I am trying to organize a nice, leisurely paddle on Saturday morning, Oct 26th.  I have 2 extra single kayaks to allow 2 other people to go with me...send me an email if interested.  I'm hoping a few other generous souls out there with extra boats would be interested in doing the same, so we could put together a nice solid group.

High tide is around 10:00am so the timing is great to launch at the Soscol Park and then shuttle trucks to the yacht club for the pull-out.  We will be riding the outgoing tide and the current the whole way...very easy paddle.  Minimal wind this early in the morning.We will be going very slow...but paddlers should be in minimally good shape.  The entire paddle should take about 1 to 1.5 hrs.  Getting wet is always a possibility.

I hope to make this a reoccurring thing if all goes well and the weather stays nice.

See you all next Tuesday at 7:00 and we can organize then.

      I went to the right one, not the housing development but the one with the boat ramp. At the time I arrived there (10 am) there was a company with several kayaks and people were arriving for that excursion. I came home at 10: 45 and check my email and didn't have anything form you guys I sent a couple of emails to Matt saying I was at the yacht club that's when I realized you were meeting at the church, don't know how I missed that. I went back to the yacht club and waited until 11:45.

      Very sad I missed it since I love kayaking and was looking forward to this experience, sorry you guys had to wait for me at the church, maybe another time :)

    Hello kayakers, I checked the place I planned to put in off Soscol and the brush was really overgrown and nasty. Lets make this easy/simple and just go up and back the river from the yacht club...we can meet at the church and carpool there. We actually could use an extra PFD if anyone has an extra.
    Its been a little misty in the mornings, but its been burning off nicely by around 10-11. We should be back by around noon.
    If anyone has any questions just email me or post here...

      Tell me your schedule and we can go out again during the week. The weather is still really nice. I'm so sorry we didn't cross paths...that was why I kinda wanted to carpool from the church. Lets talk on Tuesday...OR I would love to go out on the river again tomorrow if you don't have plans. What do you think? I'll just leave the boats on the truck overnight. Problem solved?!?

    I'm so glad I went kayaking today. We were floating in the beauty that completely surrounded us.

    It was a beautiful day. Matt made it easy and fun with no worries. We saw a variety of other boats and paddlers on the river; some shorebirds, ducks and geese, and made a stop at the new dock for gelato and coffee. I loved our group. Thank you Matt!

    thought I posted but... anyway, love the idea of kayaking, don't have one though. I'll check to see if there is a rental place to utilize and report my findings on Tuesday. Thanks for taking the initiative Matt.
