Going coastal

Posted by Ken Campbell January 2, 2009 0 Comment 456 views

I am leaving for La Push later this morning. The whole family’s going, along with a few friends and an old black dog. It’s 5:00 am now and it’s snowing, although I don’t think it’s going to stick.

The original plan was to go to the Surf Frolic (or Surf Pummel), but I got this weekend by mistake, and now it turns out I wouldn’t have been able to make it next weekend anyway, which is when the event is actually scheduled. I’m disappointed because I really made an effort to remember it this year and I’ve never been to a Pummel before. I have heard that it is not to be missed, except by me, of course. Perhaps it will all work out next year.

I’m feeling pretty sanguine about the weekend we’ve got coming up. There’s a kayak and a couple SUPs on the van which I hope to get some use of. I envision a combination SUP and beachwalk trip across the river and up Rialto Beach. I have paddled along shore here but I’ve never walked the sand, so I’d like to do that.

I’m actually not making any plans right now. There are many options and they are all good.
