The fog bank slowly burned away in front of us and we got under the bridge with good visibility. We enjoyed seeing an occasional dolphin. As we left the protection of the bay and got into the open ocean, we got a good taste of the southern swell that has been causing havoc on the beaches. Steep waves formed as the southern swell met the ebb from the bay. The ride was rough and we cut the corner to get the bow into the swell.
