While we were in the San Juan Islands, off the coast of Washington State, we took one morning to go explore the coastline via sea kayak. We kayak semi-frequently in Austin, and enjoy it quite a bit, though it is obviously a bit different on the ocean. For starters, we saw a pod of orcas as well as a harbor seal, and I can't say I have ever done that in Austin. hehe Plus, the weather was cool and I had these fabulous clouds to look at, so all in all it was about the best morning I can imagine! This was one of many shots I took from the kayak that day. It's pretty hard to take pictures, keep your camera dry, paddle and steer a kayak, and enjoy the scenery all at the same time - but hey it sure is fun trying!
