I couldn't bear to leave early today, so I paddled out from Pasadena Point in about 2.5 feet of water and headed over to the sand spit. I met and spoke with a couple of other solo paddlers (Gary and Jim). We enjoyed each others company and paddled to the same take out on the spit, where we took paths to different locations but wound up leaving at the same time, standing on the dune and talking for a while. A leisurely paddle back turned this into 2 plus hours; every minute enjoyable. The picture is from the top of the dune looking toward Morro Rock.
