The Big Paddle

Sunday, June 30, 2007 the kids and I launched our kayaks at Kirby Park down at the end of Elkhorn Slough and started paddling to Moss Landing 5 miles up-slough. It was a beautiful day. Although it would be good to find a day when the tide was with us coming and going, we were impatient and paddled toward the mouth of the slough at Moss Landing against an incoming tide.

1.5 hours later we landed at the nice little beach at Moss Landing, had lunch, then paddled back. Lots of shore birds, seals, sea otters (big rafts of them) and we talked to one of the docents who had some amazing nudibranches he had collected in the sea-grass flats.
