Birthday trip

24 September 2013 | Morro Bay, Ca.
Capt Dennis
The three day weekend started early, like Thursday morning at the crack of dawn early! Driving for 5-1/2 hours south I ended up at Morro Bay and dropped the Kayak in the bay and paddled up-river (!) to the far end of the estuary, that just happened to be where Rich & Lori of S/V Third Day were moored. I didn't know that so I actually paddled from one end of the bay nearest the outlet all the way to the other end against the outflowing tidal current! LOL
So much for thinking before getting in the water... but next time...
Anyway, I spent awhile aboard visiting with Rich and the family and then headed up town to a favorite spot recommended by Rich (The infamous Mexico Taco cart expert!) for dinner... Tacos de Mexico... and let me tell you it was worth it. Awesome plate dinner and the beer was ice cold. Fantastic way to end a day.
The next day I rolled out early and headed to the beach with the metal detector. Yes I found some cool stuff but no diamond or gold jewelry. Darn it...
So on Saturday morning I headed back to the bay nearer to The Third Day but Rich had already left to take care of some business in Bakersfield so I just paddled out thru the flats and enjoyed the morning fog and light drizzle with a hot cup of coffee and some very vocal sea lions. Packing up at noon and heading back ending a great mini-birthday-vacation trip to the coast.
