Where the spirit leads the feet will follow.
Down distant paths for unmapped miles.
Heads forget but hearts remember:
The art of living knows no bounds.

* Russian River Paddle - Healdsburg to Forestville

August 21
Healdsburg Memorial Beach to Steelhead Beach at Forestville.

Myself and three other North Bay Kayakers made this fun run. There was some rough water right at the start, but the rest of the way was smooth sailing (paddling) which was nice in our longer boats.

We met at Steelhead Beach and loaded boat onto two trucks and headed up to Healdsburg. When we got back to Steelhead, we loaded the boat on the two truck we left and headed back to Healdsburg to retrieve the other two autos.

Total time was about 5 hours, which included a lengthy lunch break.
