We could not resist paddling through here on the 1997 BASK Mendocino campout.
Roger smashed the nose of his boat while paddling too close to shore. He stopped on the Mendocino City Beach to cover it with some ductape that I loaned to him.
The ductape worked well enough to last for several trips.
I paddled the rest of the way around the Mendocino Headlands (see below) on a longer trip from the Noyo Harbor to the Big River.

Another trip through a smaller cave:
No end of coves, caves and arches on the headlands:
A beautiful arch I went under, but ran out of film to record. I will go back again one day.
