Sea Kayak Committee Report – Fall, 2018

A Short Story in Pictures:
Believe it or not, the pictures here were taken by James Chang on his iPhone 10 during our, Autumn Leaves Paddle to Four Sparrows Marsh. (Apparently salt water actually improves picture quality on an iPhone 🙂 It was a gray, rainy, 54˚ morning when we launched at 10 am, and at least one of the Co-Kayak Chairs would have preferred to have rolled over for another ten winks. But the water was warm, the tide was high at the marsh, and the lighting was obviously perfect for picture taking.
