'Do the Slough!', with The Next Chapter - Saturday, 8/26, 11am

kayakersJoin members of The Next Chapter Chavurah on a canoe/kayak trip down the Sammamish Slough. This trip is short (2 hours) and easy, so it is quite appropriate for novices who have never paddled before. We will put in at Bothell Landing, at 10:45am, then paddle down to Lake Washington, where we will take out at Log Boom Park in Kenmore. If you don't have a vessel, you can rent a double kayak at Bothell Landing for about $35, then drop it off in Kenmore when we are finished.

Or, you can sign up to be a passenger or paddler in someone else's boat. Afterward, we will meet for lunch at 1:30pm, at the Lake Trail Taproom's outdoor patio garden. Non-paddlers can just meet for lunch. Click here to sign up.
