PADDLING – “My Sea-kayak Adventures with the Girls,” will be presented at 7 p.m. on Monday, Nov. 28, for the Spokane Canoe & Kayak Club at Mountain Gear Corporate Headquarters, 6021 E. Mansfield Ave. in Spokane Valley. 

The free slide program will be presented by Debbie Pierce as she shares highlights of annual women-only kayak trips to the Gulf Islands, Broken Islands and Johnstone Strait off of Vancouver Island, Kenai Fjords National Park in Alaska, Green River in Utah, and Ross Lake in Washington’s North Cascades.

Pierce, who points out that she also enjoys trips with her husband and mixed groups, said the program’s photos and stories will help explain why girls-only kayak adventures are so special.”
