Kayak #3, Buffalo Bayou, Downtown to Turkey Bend, May 6, 2020

Biked up to downtown and entered Buffalo Bayou heading east. I took the Bayou to just west of Turkey Bend, where I started seeing commercial barge traffic and heavy industry on both sides of the Bayou.  The end of the Houston Ship Channel is only a couple miles east.

As the bayou heads east it gets wider and deeper becoming a commercial waterway.

The bayou really opens up
Selfie time!

I made it to just west of Turkey Bend where a large barge was being loaded with scrap metal and I turned back to a lovely little take-out spot with a nice dock.

No mud! No rocks! A real dock!

From here I hiked back to my bike at the Sabine Bridge.
