San Diego River Redux

I headed down to the river early this morning, to beat the heat.  The San Diego River Geocaching Power Trail awaited.

I parked over by the boat marinas and headed across the bridge, hanging a right towards the west, up the trail to Ocean Beach.  Finding and not-finding caches along the way.

People were walking around in the mud, maybe looking for clams and stuff, I don't know.

Lots of these white birds around, egrets, maybe?  I need Stephen Maturin to help me out here!

This bird flew over and just stood there watching this guy. I guess it was waiting for him to stir (I forgot how to spell that, took five minutes to figure it out!) up some food.

A portion of Dog Beach.  A barky little Boston Terrier  started circling me and barking quite vociferously. Its owner explained that it didn't like hats, for some reason.

One of the caches was in this "cave". I got claustrophobic and so had to scramble back out.  Didn't find it.

Is this an egret or a heron?  I think it must be a female, because of its lack of bright plumage.

Well, that was about it for today.  I found eleven caches, and didn't find six.  Mileage was 3.79 miles, with a elevation maximum of around 16 feet.

LAST time I was down here, on August the First, I came upon this nicely separated bicycle/pedestrian path.   I was back there around the corner, heading this way.  I was walking on the pedestrian part, as it is clearly marked.  And wouldn't you expect it, two bicyclists came towards me, from this direction, on the pedestrian path.  They came right past this clearly-marked entrance. Oblivious, I guess!

I misspelled "pedestrian" every time I typed it back there.  And I misspelled "misspelled" here, too!

I believe the white bird is an egret and the other is a grey heron. We see them at the Bataquitos Lagoon quite often.
