Getting wet

Day 1, October 13, 2008.
Columbus Day.

Weather: 60F, cloudy, wind 10 mph from the SW. Water: 53F

Blowing straight onto the beach where I'll start. A wee bit ugly, but could be a lot worse for October in Washington. Sun pops out just as I get in the water, nice.

Just have a few minutes, won't make much distance.

Star of the day, the purple sea star, Pisaster ochraceus. I saw several clinging to rocks near the shore, purple even in the dim light.

Wandered around, didn't really go anywhere. But at least I got started.

Location: Fort Ward State Park boat ramp.
