Estero Americano Floods


I rode my bike to scout the Estero Americano over the weekend, the body of water dividing Western Marin and Sonoma counties. Almost exactly a year ago I made my first post on this weblog after a paddle on the Estero to explore the availability of sea grasses like bulrush for a furniture-making experiment. I’ve done some research over the past year into native basketry using these materials, and am ready for another round of experimentation. Following a winter with low precipiation, I was pleased to find the Estero flooded and will make another exploratory paddle this week.
