My first night after long by myself on a beach…I really enjoy paddling with all those different addlng partners, but it also adds “stress” to my trip – which I chose to enjoy! If I’d only get more sleep…

I happily paddled along today, just stopped once at a wonderful beach corner behind a reef to adjust my back rest. My daily whales showed up, plus sea otters, seals, sea lions, pelicans, lovely rocks to paddle behind…the usual, one could almost say! And the usual wind breezed up after noon, and Point Sierra Nevada became actually quite nasty!I was lucky I didn’t catch a breaker, but decided to go in with 25+ knots tail wind behind the hook of the reef into dead calm water. A great place, and good decision!

I was able to catch up with three updates, and some extended physical rest. I will meet Russ Wilson, my new host in Cambria tomorrow! Thanks for volunteering to look after me and my kayaks, Russ!
