Venice redux 21 years later

6822-023
In June I visited Venice for 3 nights with my family, it was my second visit and I enjoyed it more than my first. It may have been a combination of travelling with my kids, being more relaxed, and having a larger budget in my late forties than my mid twenties.

Memorial Day weekend paddle

New club, new destination, and I paddled on a Saturday which is very rare. This is the farthest distance I have gone one way, 7.45 miles, and to a place I haven’t paddled to before. The 6 man crew took about an hour and a half with some breaks to get to Keehi Lagoon from the club site. The water was nice and the wind only got tough from the Keehi channel buoy till we landed on the beach it was a great experience.

My new club launches at the McCully Bridge into the Ala Wai.
Passing the fishing village on Mokauea Island.
Paddling through Keehi Lagoon small boat harbor.
Getting near the end passing moored ships/barges.
