Angel Island camping

Some friends were camping on Angel Island for a week, and invited me to join them. I was able to join them for one night. Angel Island is in the middle of the San Francisco Bay. Rather than take the ferry over, I decided to kayak out to the island and back.
友達はAngel Islandで1週間キャンプした。招待してくれた。Angel Islandはサンフランシスコ湾の中葉なのでカヤックで島に行った。

Our campsite had great views of San Francisco and the Golden Gate Bridge.

We had great weather while we were there. Fall is definitely the best weather in San Francisco. The fog goes away and the temperature is pleasant. It was good that it was this way, as our campsite would have been cold if there was wind and fog!
いい天気だった。サンフランシスコの秋の天気は1番いいと思う。 霧が愛し、気温がいいし。霧や風の場合はそのキャンプ場は寒いので、良かった。

Below is the GPS track of my route. I paddled in a clockwise direction.

Definitely a fun little trip.

Limantour Paddle

I took today off of work and went for a kayak trip by myself. I went up to Point Reyes and launched off of Limantour Beach. I had heard that there was a lot of wildlife here, including humpback whales, which I hoped to see. Video below is some of what I saw.
今日仕事を休んで、一人でカヤックに乗った。 ポイント・レイエスのリマントウル・ビーチで進水した。最近そこで多い野生生物(クジラとか)があるそうだ。見たい!下のビデオはそこからだ:

I did see a humpback whale in the distance, but did not get any photos or videos of it.
