Jeff and Cate are holding sea kayak rock gardening clinics July 8-10. And they have a couple of open spots left. I would jump at this if I didn't have longstanding plans to join Headwaters’ Dan Arbuckle and a group for a weekend of camping, paddling, and feeding the skeeters near Redding – a cool spot, not! Some lucky kayaker will enjoy Mendo magic while we march or fry, as the French Legionnaires say.
Jeff says that he and Cate focus on classes and guided tours tailored to the skills of their clients, so it sounds like a great way to beat the heat without beating yourself up in the surf. Click the link above to their excellent Web site for contact info, fees, and various paddling trip options.
More incentive needed? When it was 102 in Sacramento the other day, Mendocino was struggling to hit 60.
