Yesterday's paddle on Tomales Bay was as pleasant as it could possibly be. I got an early start and paddled near shore.
I had no human companions on this trip, but abundant animal life surrounded me for the whole trip. Solitary paddling offers sublime serenity.
I passed over and startled many bat rays and leopard sharks who seemed to be basking in the clear shallow waters along the eastern shore of the bay.
