At first wasn't sure it would be sunny near the beach but the sun came out by the start of today trip. Was so glad. Had a wonderful time with a group of very friendly people. Most had kayak b/4 so I wasn't so much stuck in the back with the newbies today. Made for much less stress for me today. Here are some random shots from today>
Getting ready to start, the kayaks are pointing towards PCH.
Me in the hat and El in the blue. I forgot to get my water bottle out of my bag.
Heading out into Huntington Harbor, look there is sun out!
Large group today, Frank and I are both in yellow kayaks, me in my hat and he is in the orange t-shirt
Frank in the yellow kayak, the couple in front was so funny because the man rarely paddle and left his wife to do all the work! Outrageous!
Low bridge, everybody down. Tide started to rise while we were out by the time we got back to base there was hardly any beach left at all.
What can you say but a beautiful sunny day in S.CA. That's me in the yellow kayak with the large straw hat on. Was so nice today!
One of the many sea birds, no idea what type. Pretty cute, I think.
One woman saved a pigeon that somehow feel in the water. She grabbed him/her with the paddle and the bird sat in the back of her boat until we got to our break point. Also at the break point there was a dead sting ray on the beach right under the sand where I put in my kayak at. I picked it up with my paddle and threw in the trash. Even dead they can cause problems if you step on one. Everyone was surprised to see it inside the harbor. They have had a big problem with them this year at all the local beaches. Warnings have been put out to remind people to shuffle their feet in the sand so they don't step on one and get stung.
We didn't go out with the gang to lunch today but came home, ate lunch, showered. I went over to the market and then made meatloaf for dinner. Jeff had to .work over at the Anaheim Convention Ctr. at 7:30pm tonight for a pull out. He will get home after midnight. Poor dear, thought he was suppose to be there this morning and even went over to the convention ctr. only to realize it was tonight. LOL
Took Phred for a short walk of 1.44 miles. Only going to be on Sparks for a short while because I want to watch "Scoundrels" & "The Gates" starting at 9pm.
Sorry 2 pics didn't come out again, I'll try again.
