Got to hit up Big Sur with Derrick and another forum NCKA member Andy, started off in a small camping spot in Morro Bay to give us a head start.
|Derrick in the camp site|
|My First Kayak Starfish|
|Derrick's Ling Cod|
|Ready for the Frying Pan|
|Brown Rock Fish|
|Andy's nice Rock Fish|
|Kelp Green Ling and a water drop over my face|
On the landing somehow I made it in without wiping out, when I went to drag the kayak up the beach I thought I was just tired, but it was full of water! I estimate around 40 to 50 gallons. It was almost full, thank god I made it, I have to thank Andy again for being there to motivate and help me through it. Flipping the kayak over on a lake or in a pool is a whole lot different than doing it in 5ft swells and wind after a day of fishing and 45 minutes of hard paddling.
After all of that When I went to help Andy land a wave knocked me off my feet and pulled my new glasses off my face. I had to drive back to Hanford, Ca with my sunglasses in the dark. After all of that I have a new appreciation for things and respect for the ocean and what people can do to help a fellow human out. I will always remember this trip.
Thanks for reading,
