Debra and I made the run to Moss Landing Saturday morning Wave Walkers in tow. We made the traditional stop at Phils Fish Market. Sandab sammys……
Launched at around noon with incoming tide.
What’s that smell?
Made a left under the bridge
Headed about 2 miles up riding the tide. Sea otters were thick
Debra gets pulled over for speeding by Julie Packard Police
He really wanted to share his knowledge. He explained that all of the otters back in the slough were females and the rowdy young males guard the slough at the entrance repelling suitors. Gaseous horny leopard seals were everywhere. They have splashed close to Debra many times so she gives them her most potent stinkeye.
Made a left into a side slough that parallels the main slough for a couple of miles. This side slough is great for birding but don’t get caught there on low tide.
Finally broke back into the main slough and rode the outgoing back to the coast
Heard many white seabastians caught today off the hotels. Saw the otter male gangs near the mouth.
