1) Tide was low leaving plenty of shoreline grasses exposed.

2) Late afternoon bandits were taking advantage of the low tide.

3) Setting sun at the entrance to Bay Grass.

4) Last of the sun near Grand Bay.

5) A beautiful sky made this paddle memorable.

6) Although you can't see it in this photo, hundreds of fish were jumping out of the water to see the sunset.

7) The Cochrane - Africatown USA Bridge looks awesome from a kayak at night.

8) There is something about the quietness at night and the glittering reflections that entices me to paddle Mobile River at night, much like a moth is attracted to light.

9) The colored lights accentuate the night skyline.

10) Work goes on 24 hours a day along Mobile River, so be very careful if you kayak this river, especially at night.
