11/16/2012 - Dalton Schaller

Today was the day that many of us had been looking forward to for a long time. We were finally able to set out on our sea kayaking portion of the trip. With just a few hours of preparation in the morning we were finally able to set out into the Bay of Los Angeles. Along this paddle, I was able to achieve a couple of important desires that I had for this portion. The first part was simply to get back out on the water. That is one thing that I have always enjoyed and knew would be accomplished once this time came around. Also, I was highly looking forward to seeing many different animals along this portion. From the start we were able to watch seagulls and pelicans flying around and diving at the water for fish. There was even some kind of new and interesting type of grebe swimming near us. We also saw many fish jump at the top of the water while we paddled. After arriving at camp we did a few normal tasks and then saw a seal swimming by the beach we are at. Later we saw a raccoon wondering around the beach. Now, to end the day I am going to go to sleep on a beach, looking up at the sky and listening to the waves and occasional coyote howls.
