I went for a long solo kayak in my new Oru folding kayak. It went really well for the most part. I started at about 10am and ended a little after 1pm. I was able to get Lyfts both ways and it was pretty convenient. The route on the map is shorter than the real one because on the left side of the map where it goes through the middle of the wetlands I was lost. Navigating when everything looks like water from the surface, but you get close and it is mud bars just under the surface, its tricky.
There were also two choke points where the water was flowing rapidly. The first one was going the way I was going so I just rode it, but the second was going the other way and I had to portage around it. That proved tough, but since the kayak is so light it wasn’t too bad.
I saw a ton of birds, at the end there was a flock that was murmating. I also saw some harbor seals relaxing on the bank.
