Hunters Point Paddle

Feb 2 2000

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 storage yard.
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.
