Last week we were down on the harbor eating lunch at Aldo's, a seafood restaurant that allows dogs if you eat outside. The dogs loved watching the seagulls rush towards the tidbits I secretly dropped over the edge of the platform. While sitting there, we saw the Chardonnay II pull out of the harbor, loaded with school kids.
Anyhoo, Saturday morning his daughter treated us to a morning sail. The weather was warm, the water calm, and just enough of a breeze that we could sail for a bit.
There was also a student from UCSC on board that was a senior, majoring in marine biology, so we learned lots of things about the sealife in the bay, the differences between dolphins & porpoises, how you can tell if you're looking at a sea lion or a harbor seal, and how the seaweed in the kelp forests grow 18" every day!
We saw otters,
