I'd like to paddle any place that's close by--Lake Washington primarily.
In the NW, I've only paddled on Mercer Slough and in the arboretum.
I guess I'm intermediate. I've canoed and kayaked many times over many years but I have never taken a class and I don't know how to read charts or roll. I'm not comfortable going out by myself.
Mostly in CA: Tomales Bay, Mono Lake, San Francisco Bay, Elkhorn Slough...
Little makes me happier than a fine day paddling. I'm looking for people who can introduce me to good places to paddle, help me figure out what gear I should buy and get me out on the water--even when it's cold outside.
