Sisterful held its first co-ed event of the year on Saturday, July 13!

We hooked up with Sausalito's Sea Trek Ocean Kayaking Center to explore palm-tree lined Richardson Bay in double sit-on-top kayaks. With 10 attendees (six ladies and four gents), we had an even number of people in five double kayaks. Perfect! We didn’t need any previous experience. It was easy to learn, especially with our outstanding and caring instructor Steve.

Steve taught us the basics, pointed out the best areas to explore, and then sent us on our way for a paddle among the pelicans, seals, and quirky houseboats. Most of us opted for wet suits when we saw how wet other kayakers had gotten. We looked like pros paddling the Bay in our life vests. Afterwards, we talked over lunch at Venice Gourmet and its neighboring Bridgeway Cafe.

This was a great way to unite sisters and brothers of color for a fun, exciting, and new activity!

Consider our horizons expanded!
