More Kayaking in S.F.

On Saturday, after coming to the conclusion that the wind would indeed blow the wrong direction all day, It looked to be a perfect kayak day. With that we got a bit of a late start. But our buddy Van was able to join us for some fun. Alas Van needed a kayak and while City Kayak professed to open there was no-one around. We eventually got in the water at 2pm. My vague plan was to make it out to Crissy fields, the currents are quite strong there, but the tides would have been perfect an hour or two earlier. An extra bonus today was trying out my new GoPro camera and the mount I made for it. Always fun to have an extra toy around :)
Around about fishermans wharf we got hungery and pulled in there on a mission to find crab, well Van was anyway, he knew someone somewhere around there.
Or maybe it was the next Wharf along, passed the USS Pampantic submarine.
Going under the wharfs is quite surreal, a little bit like and underground maze by boat.
Amazingly Van did indeed find a whole lot of crab and it was yummy.
We surfed the tide back in to the dock near AT&T baseball park around dusk.
The current was ripping then, a very fun day, and warm for January.
And with the right tides and weather we can give this another go soon hopefully :)
