So there I was, camping peacefully on the beach at the estero all by myself, when I awoke the next morning to some strange sounds coming from down the beach. This is what I saw. Imagine my surprise, "Who are these people?!" It's the BASK Cow Paddy Pageant Welcoming Committee. They had arrived while I was still sleeping. They're waiting for the first racers of their annual Cow Paddy Pageant to arrive at the end of the estero.
