Exploring Humboldt Bay with Kayaks

CalmBay

On Dec. 24 we explored Humboldt Bay in our kayaks. The weather was perfect. The bay was as smooth as glass.

We paddled up the slough near Murray Field.

There are all sorts of interesting remnants from railroads and piers from years gone by.

We saw this fellow hovering above. Then it swooped down and snatched a little duck out of the water, returned to shore and devoured it. Yikes!

It seemed pissed that I was taking its photo.

I'm seeing a lot of "Old Crow" graffiti. Is that a local gang? Maybe I'll start my own gang called Bombay Sapphire.
