I rented a kayak and paddled up the Elkhorn Slough. This is a wetland area connected to the ocean.
It was a nice day, very warm for the winter here, and sunny.
I saw lots of interesting animals, including some very playful otters. One otter was eating a fish. One was a mother teaching a baby to dive and swim, by taking it for short dives on her chest.
The mouth of the harbor has a lot of commercial fishing boats in it, that were really cool looking.
I took a short trip to the ocean, but because the water was so cold, and I was alone I didn't try surfing in any of the breaking waves.
