My brother Kirk and I followed in the tradition of our Viking ancestors and braved the icy waters of the San Francisco Bay yesterday. It was foggy, as you can see in the pics. Launching near Fort Point was a pretty good idea, but the bumbling surf launch off the rocks wasn't. Casualties included wet socks and pants plus a couple gallons of bay water in the bottom of the kayak.
We had company on the water: a stand-up paddlboarder who was surfing the curl off the fort. Fortunately the cameras stayed dry.
