|Doug Wilkins and I launched from the Bay View
Boat Club ramp at 1:30pm
||On the wall next to the ramp was a beautiful
tile mural There was a sign that read "beware of
rats" and later I saw a small brown rat right next
to this sign.
|We paddled South past the hospital ship MERCY
in beautiful, glassy, warm conditions.
||Onward we paddled past a sleeping sea lion.
We found a small pocket beach right next to what looked
like the SF police driving training course and MUNI bus
|A lot of old derelict buildings in a colorful
combination of steel and rust.
||We paddled back and saw the
sunset reflected under a pier.
