KAYAKING: Half Day Classic 10/18/2016

Wow, what a morning on the bay! Beautiful, calm and warm. Just a little windy for a bit, so we got our exercise, but the wind laid down at the end. Tons of great wildlife today - multiple osprey sightings, both brown and white pelicans, thousands of shorebirds in the channel, including willets, godwits and curlews. Terns wheeling overhead, turkey vultures, eared grebes and first season sightings of a common loon and two surf scoters. We also saw several harbor seals and a sea otter! Great day!

KAYAKING: Half Day Classic 10/17/2016

Beautiful post rain storm morning. Calm waters, clearing skies. We had a very full bay to explore, paddling over the salt marsh, visiting the harbor seals in the channels and going back to see the shorebirds waiting for the water to subside so they could start feeding in the pickleweed. Thousands of shorebirds, including sandpipers, American avocets, curlews, willets, black bellied plovers. Some brown pelicans still hanging about and several osprey sightings as well. A very nice morning!

HIKING: Big Sur Ecotour 10/12/2016

Beautiful fall day in Big Sur today. Blue whales spotted off the coast! Over 100 zebras at the north Hearst Ranch boundary as well.
