Estero Drained

Yesterday I went out to the Estero to check on the level of the water.

The four inches of rain that have fallen in the area recently were enough to fill it up so much that it broke though the sandbar at the beach. The Estero’s waters have drained into Bodega Bay.

It’s tidal for now. Its waters are low. The snag under the bridge again blocks the channel.

Launching at the usual spot would be difficult.

My next outing will be in another estuary.
