As we gathered at Miller Park for a midweek paddle, the winds were present, maybe 5 mph. We paddled across toward Hog Island and were delighted to see harbor seals and their pups hauled out on shore. As we slowly floated by, their big eyes followed our brightly colored kayaks. As we entered White Gulch, the winds began to die down and our float through the gulch resulted in leopard shark and jellyfish sightings. Just before lunch we unsealed our skirts and played a round of kayak basketball. It was a close game but it got called short as our hungry bodies demanded fuel. The protected beach allowed us to dry out a bit as we enjoyed our lunch and conversation. The bay was flat as we reentered our kayaks and returned towards the launch. The harbor seals again watched us float by and a couple followed us, alerting us to their presence as they came up for air with a slight exhale.
