Carquinez Bridge and Strait.

back to my home page. To see a map of this area.

Allthough not one of the Bay Areas most attractive bridges, the Carquinez Bridge does have an engineering elligance to it.
We discovered that a kayaker can paddle inside the central pylon that holds up the Carquinez Bridge.
On the way home we stopped for lunch.
Across the Carquinez Strait from Martinez is a little island where a lone kayaker can camp over night.
