Shakedown cruise

Eric just finished teaching his summer classes, so today we went out for a "shakedown cruise" on Tomales Bay our first sail of the summer.  We launched from Nick's Cove, sailed up towards Walker Creek, and then crossed over to White Gulch.  Below are some pictorial highlights from the afternoon:

Elegant Terns resting on oyster floats.


 
Harbor Seal cruising by our bow.


The always attractive Point Reyes shoreline.  Here's one more:



Adult Black-crowned Night-Heron perched among lichen-draped branches. 


Osprey, perhaps wondering if it's going to be able to finish such a large fish!
