Paddled out from the Baywood Pier at 6 pm with Lorelei and Ron, meeting Jim (coming from Cuesta)out in the water. We spotted a bat ray in the Baywood inlet, with one swimming right next to my boat. Sweet!. We paddled to the algae out at the sand spit, and worked our way toward the opening of Shark Inlet before heading back along the shoreline past Cuesta and back to Baywood. We made it out of the water and loaded on the truck just at dusk. A fine outing.
