SherriKayaks 2015 Schedule of Classes and Trips is Out!

Wednesday, February 4th, 2015

I have the preliminary 2015 schedule posted on the “Schedule” page of this website.  I am doing a few things differently this year, though.  In the past, due to a lack of clairvoyance on my part, I have always ended up cancelling several classes that didn’t get anyone interested in registering while not having enough […]

Odds and Ends

Schedule Changes and Additions

Friday, July 8th, 2011

Once more I apologize for not getting any new posts up on my blog.  Taking care of a husband with a broken leg who cannot drive and needs to go to physical therapy three times a week has left me with not a lot of extra time lately.  Please keep checking back as I will […]

Getting Comfortable in Waves and Surf
