around 9:30  we portages the conoe and kayaks over to the esturary and headed towards the inlet.. the tide was going out, so the water was gettign pretty shallow .. 


we saw beutiful egrets, herons.. and soee other birds.. and a couple of large and beutiful seals.. that refused to be photogrrphed well 


we pulled out just before the tidal current was ready to pull us out into the surf.. 


we wenet for a nice mile or so walk on the beach.. lookign for sewa glass and sand dollars 


on the way back, the tide was still goign out.. so we had to fight the current to get to the boat ramp.. and portage back into the protected lagoon . 


we got howe around 11:30 to find Andrew there.. eh’d biked over from Mill Valley .. thats over mt tam.. amazing !.

we all went out for a birthday lunch at Parkside.. .. really yummy… 


then andrew took us up Mt Tam where we hiked back aroudn on the costal traill
