Visit to Manzanita, Oregon

While on a family vacation in Oregon, I realized we were next door to Cape Falcon Kayak, so I went over to check them out.  On a Thursday, a class of six were coating the skins of their kayaks.  We watched for a while and admired the boats.

Boats turned to coat decks.

Leisurely paddle on the Housy with Maia and Rachel.

This little inlet off the main stream was a still-water pond covered with green vegetation (duck weed?).  It looked like the boats were sitting on a grassy clearing.
