A brief respite in a blustery month allowed seven paddlers to get on the water and exercise their well rested paddling muscles. Mild conditions made for an easy cruise past Kaka’ako, downtown and Sand Island. Boat traffic was minimal so no one played chicken with our motorized brethren.

New member, Harry Chiu, enjoyed his first ever ocean paddle. A Colorado native, Harry looks forward to seeing more of our beautiful island from the water on future paddles.

Sandy discovered some interesting hitchhikers in her footwell when she was about to rinse off her kayak. Not sure how they got there. They look like frogfish fry, but that’s just a guess.
