Nobody has ever really considered Baby Beach one of the cleanest water swimming areas around but today was no bueno. Oil slick at Baby Beach in Dana Point Harbor. I jumped on my Stand Up Paddle Surfboard this afternoon and was bummed. The water was thick and the fuel rainbow was stink. It wasn't localized to the first 5 feet. From end to end of the shore at Baby Beach to the opening into the marina. If you got little one's keep them out of the water! (there is a little warning sign, it should be big a neon)
Regardless, I did a four 10 minute sprints for a good Stand Up Paddle Surf workout. Ran into a couple of Stand Up Paddle Surfers paddling around getting the hang of things. I always run into others down at Dana Point Harbor while doing my workouts.
Stay safe and Paddle with Aloha.
