Just Back And Feat Of The Week

June 29, 2004

My wife Heather and I kayaked a grueling one-way, 17-mile trip along the rugged and scenic Na Pali coast of Kauai. Wind and white-capped waves repeatedly capsized other kayakers in our group, requiring lots of "self-rescue" maneuvers. Huge swells made our kayaks zigzag to where we must have actually paddled nearly 25 miles! We launched at 7:30 a.m. and landed six hours later, while exploring several sea caves, rocky reefs and lava tubes with occasional sea turtles watching us.
