Lots of action in Laguna today – Happy Father's Day to all you beachin dads!
Sunfish Spotted Today! - The Mola mola - which looks like a prehistoric shark that lost a tail in an epic battle - might be the world's weirdest fish. It's the largest bony fish and can grow up to 5000lbs. They generally hang out at depths of 160 to 650 feet, but they can dive more than 2600 feet below the surface.
Summer has arrived and the water is warm!!
Paddle boarding in Irvine Cove we ran into this large purple striped jellyfish. As they are most commonly found in Monterey Bay, this was a treat!
Bull Kelp as know as edible kelp, bullwhip kelp, ribbon kelp, giant kelp, and bladder wrack is commonly found in the rough/cold Alaska coast (less common in SoCal). It's filled with carbon dioxide which floats it to the surface where it drawing energy from the sun (photosynthesis) and can grow up to 10" per day!!
Paddling in the magnificent Irvine Cove!
It's starting to feel like summer!
Seals and Sea Lions abound.
This is how we do 'Winter'
Warm Santa Ana winds and smooth seas. Can't ask for better kayaking weather in mid-December!
