Place: Morro Bay State Park, Morro Bay, California
|A blue day in Morro Bay|
After a wobbly start and a stern warning to the chikas not to lean over the water and have our canoe capsize, we headed out northward toward Morro Rock, where the park's docent had told us we could see otters.
Nearly immediately we spotted this lovely kingfisher perched over the water.

I'm pleased to say that none of us was swallowed by quicksand.

|Remember that scene from the movie 'Finding Nemo'?|

Non of us fell into the bay, and the hat is ok.
