New Year’s – Petaluma River – 1/1/11

On a cold, gray, windy, News Year’s morning, five intrepid PPers put in at the Petaluma Marina, and headed north, toward the center of town.  Ray, Rich, Lori, Don, and I, made up the group.

We were all launched and paddling toward town by 11:00. About forty minutes later, we had reached the turning basin in downtown. We decided  to forgo the lunch stop at Dempsey’s and continued to paddle up river a ways. After passing under the Payran St. Bridge, we decided to turn around and head back. When we had returned to the turning basin, Lori and Don decided to hang there awhile. Ray, Rich and I, decided to head back to the Marina.

As we began paddling, we had a slight head wind, but paddling was still fairly easy. As we turned to enter the marina, we spied a pod of blue dolphins swimming up stream toward the center of town, with Flipper in the lead! All in all, a pleasant  way to begin the new year.
