Morro Bay 8/3/10
Due to the marine layer, summers at the central coast are often not sunny, and today was no exception. Gray is great for kayaking though, and I paddled from Baywood to Morro rock and back, making a counter-clockwise loop. Some highlights included; a few seals and sea lions, otters, lots of diving birds, a closeup of the Coast Guard cutter going by, and the towing of a kayak that had floated off from some rental customers who did not understand just how much difference there is between low and high tides. A very nice 3.5 hour paddle all around. I shot a bunch of video of diving pelicans, flying cormorants, etc., but it just looks bad without a proper zoom.
