Blustery day for paddle boarders at Bodega Bay’s Doran Beach

Published on October 8, 2018 by Deb

Tony was longing for some beach time after 18 days.  I think that was the longest dry spell of his 11 months.  We were on the beach by 11AM  walking [after home check-in’s] and it was breezy.  As typical the winds were all over the place but the temp was warm so still enjoyable.  Tony of course was in heaven and I could tell he missed running in the waves and digging in the sand.  This is his job after all. 

 

We saw a couple seals come close to the shoreline but gave them a wide berth.  Did not see any babies this time. Few birds in this distance.  I was surprised at the number of people on the beach until I remembered it was a holiday weekend (Columbus Day) and homes in the harbor book out on holidays. Lots of dogs which thrilled Tony…he’s always up to making a new friend.

I’d forgotten about the Blue Water Paddle Race and was happy to see we did not miss it.  We walked up just in time to see the Adult/pet race.  Quite a few racers with their dogs and surprisingly even a GOAT!  The goat seemed very unfazed and unlike many of the dogs maintained his sea legs staying upright on the board! It was a fun event to witness and I was happy to see so many families out enjoying the day.  The weather though at times windy was warm and sunny!  I plan on keeping this event on my calendar and hope to participate should there be a Blue Water Paddle Race 2019 :).  Tony would love it!…I think… 😉

Yes…this last picture is of the goat.  He seemed to be a good sport!
