Another freezing night with a wet tent outside from the fog swaying over the water. Amazing to look at and to be right inside! Once more the sun came out, but it has much less power than the other months, sure. It is autumn! No paddling in shirt only, jacket on and hood and scarves tight over the head. In the tent, I wear long fleece pants and shirt inside my sleeping bag.
Paddling was easy along another section of remote wild river coast- until I saw the unexpected ugly industrial point of Playa Verde. Whatever they produce or process there-half of the factory is broken down, the rest is blowing steam out of many chimney into the air and running some gray or cooling (?) water into the river.
I paddled very fast past, along the endless harbor wall and right across the bay to a nice remote beach to camp. Getting there!
