Taken in Discovery Bay which is about 70 miles east of San Francisco. The dog seems to be right at home!

Yes, for some reason, my local River Thames paddle-boarders often have a dog on board. Always looks like an accident waiting to happen to me . . and my cat looks on hopefully.

Wow, that dog really does seem to be enjoying it. Our dog would be turning circles and trying to find a way off. :-)) Marvelous colors, and I love the silhouettes - fabulous shooting, Elaine! 5*
