Estuary, Morro Bay 7/18/10
Arrived this afternoon and got in the water at Pasadena Point just after 5 pm. The tide had been fairly high (over 4 ft.) and had just begun to recede, so I paddled north and rounded the peninsula, following the shoreline along Baywood and back to the Elfin Forest area. I took a small channel over into the main channel of the estuary and saw a group of about 30 white pelicans hanging out on the bank. I followed the channel almost to the bridge at Turri Creek, and turned around to head back before the water got too shallow to follow the same path back. A nice way to start a three day stay at the coast.
