Morning light on the Big River

“245. Morning Light at Big River” watercolor by Mariko Irie

This location is Big River in Mendocino, CA.

We launched a small electric boat to go up the river.

The boat was small, so my eye level was so low like sitting on the surface of the river.

It was very morning in fresh and a little chilly air. The sun ray was just right spot and shined the bank and water.

The electric boat is fabulous, because we don’t need to worry about the tie.

The Big River meets the ocean.

If you take a rowboat, you better to go up the river when the high tide and coming down when tie ebb. Otherwise you have to work soooooo hard.

Also the electric boat benefit is so quiet, it doesn’t disturb creatures.

We enjoyed otters and blue herons very much through this ride.
