Sunrise at Aliso Beach in Laguna Beach, CA
I took this picture just moments before the group launched on what would be yet another Paddle Fishing Adventure - aka PFA. Laguna to Dana Point.

Paddle Fish Adventure or PFA (definition): a route in which the participants unload their gear at a predetermined kayak launch site, drive their vehicles to the designated landing zone (19th hole), always leaving at least one member of the party behind to observe and protect the group's fishing and kayak gear. Said volunteer(s) with SUVs, vans, and/or limosines - chauffer the individual PFAr's back to the launch site. It's a one way - hopefully down current - drift and downhill troll but for reasons beyond normal mortal comprehension, these seemingly innocent paddle fish excursions have been met with less than ideal (snotty) weather and conditions time and time and time again.
