Out the Gate


It was a honor to take a couple of paddlers from Minnesota, Greg and Art Larsen out the Golden Gate. Paul Tibbetts joined us.
We followed Paul's excellent lead using the CG's fog house as protection from the incoming flood, which was already happening at about one-half to 1 knot.
We paddled to Pt. Diablo Cove Beach which was full of flotsam ,jetsam and whalebones. Picked up trash and a souvenir for Greg.
We had a hot curry chicken lunch served over steaming rice. Completed a remote beach survey and relaunched.
We headed back in the lowering low clouds.
