While we had an excellent time during our first #OptOutside adventures, they¬†did set me up with the expectation that November in the Pacific Northwest would be bright sunshine and flat-calm waters.¬† Black Friday 2016 wasn’t quite that way. It was cold and cloudy and I was super cranky. So we paused, we re-set, and we headed out later in the afternoon, fortified with snacks and beverages. It wasn’t quite the dreamy adventure that 2015 brought, but I did feel good about getting outdoors and enjoying nature. We launched from Point Defiance, paddled around to float the tides, and rafted up to snack in the middle of the Narrows.
