We'll launch from the beach at El Morro Beach at Crystal Cove State Park (aka Abalone Point). Go south to either Treasure Island or Three Arch Bay (depending on the group). Bring a lunch.
This is a beach launch and landing. Though generally mild conditions, be prepared for getting munched. It's happened.
Parking: $15 (It's a State Park) - Be sure to go to El Morro campground and NOT Los Trancos. Drive past the campers an go down the hill to the day use parking by the beach and PCH. There is a short (but manageable) lug of your boat under the highway to the beach.

Time: Meet 8:30 am Launch 9am
OPTIONAL PRE-PADDLE COFFEE AND RENDEZVOUS
