~A Dip into 2016 Memories

~As we say good bye to 2016 and welcome a new year, I thought it would be fun to share some pictures of Sacramento Paddle Pushers 2016 paddle adventures.  For those of you who were part of one or many of these paddles, thank you for making 2016 a fun year on the water.

These pictures aren’t in any specific order, but represent the following: Mokelumne River, Petaluma River, Feather River, Englebright Reservoir, Lower Sardine, June Lake, Lake Solano, Pardee Reservoir, North Fork of the American River, Wrights Lake, Echo Lake, Tahoe, Big River, Noyo River, Rodman Slough on Clear Lake, Rollins Lake and Lake Tahoe, just to name a few!!

~A Happy “Family” of Paddlers

~This is the time of the year when most of us will enjoy time with our friends and family.  Family can mean so much more than just who we’re related to.  For me personally, not only do I have a wonderful and loving family I’m related to, but I’m very fortunate to have a rather large extended family, known as Sacramento Paddle Pushers.

While paddling is our main focus, there’s so much more to what we do as a ‘family’.  We’re about hiking, bike riding, sand castles, water color painting and cooking contests, trips to the beach, whale watching, shopping, good food and wine, and much more. If any of this sounds like something you would enjoy, I encourage you to join us via meetup.com.  We’ve some wonderful outings already planned for 2017.

Enjoy some of my favorite pictures taken at various outings this past year (2016).
