11/28/2009 - Mobile River

Launch: Causeway Boat Ramp (just west of Oysterella's restaurant)

1) Conditions were calm on Spanish River, current was actually running north (tide coming in), so speed was good. 

2) Normally one has to fight the current going north. No current today!

3) Osprey Eagle.

4) Even in Mobile River the conditions today were calm.

5) Here is a big bright orange ship at the brand new Alabama State Port Authority Pinto Island facility. This new facility is expected to handle five million tons of steel slab each year. Scheduled to open in 2010 but it looks like it is open already.

6) There has been a whole lot of dredging going on just south of Pinto Island and there is a series of new ship anchor pilings in Choctaw Pass extending to the fishing reef.

7) A few white pelicans just north of old Goat Island.

8) Nice chatting with you.
9) Battleship USS Alabama.

10) The I-10 bridge up behind the old Ramada Inn.

11) Pre sunset in Chocaloochee Bay.

12) Seeing these colors from a kayak is always a nice reward for just getting out and doing it.
