Around 2pm I saw a FB post from Yuri saying she's in San Fran for a 24-hour layover on her way from NZ to Baja. A quick chat later and the plan was set to meet her at West Oakland BART so she could join us. She was traveling with full kayak kit, so it couldn't be easier. So, 6 of us set out on our way up the estuary towards the bay. L&M paddled a fair distance and said their goodbye's, opting to not do the entire loop with us. From there the four of us chatted & paddled the next four hours until we returned to our start, playing in some bumps and current along the way. Bitching & moaning, laughing & joking. Nice paddling last night and good training for the girls as the get ready for Maui and the California 100.
