It's a long weekend, so guess what? Yes, that's right -- it's cloudy. The sun is nowhere to be seen. We're getting used to cloudy weekends, and dammit, we're going kayaking anyway.
It was Patricia, Paula, Louise and myself today.
We were without a Bernie, who has become suddenly elusive. He's disappeared from sight faster than Donald Rumsfeld, Alberto Gonzales, Tom Ridge, Scooter Libby, John Ashcroft, Colin Powell, John Bolton, Paul Wolfowitz and Karl Rove combined. And have you ever noticed that you never see Bernie and Dick Cheney together in the same undisclosed underground bunker? But I digress.
Paula was in her inflatable while she awaits the arrive of her new Eliza....
...while Louise and Patricia were in their usual rides, a Delta and a Current Design respectively.
We cruised up the south side of Ten Mile Point, where we saw this heron.
He took off after a few moments.
We went up past the point and towards to Telegraph Bay. We saw a large sea lion fishing off the shore. We weren't really close enough to get a picture, and we think it's the same sea lion we saw off of Telegraph Bay a couple of years ago. We think that this is his favourite feeding area.
The tide had just turned and we caught a nice mild current on the way back.
Paula was having too much fun in her inflatable -- she may never even bother getting into her new kayak!
On the way back, we paid the heron a return visit.
That's it for this week. And actually, Bernie had a valid excuse -- he's been working on his cloning technique.
My pictures are here.
