Nice day for a paddle
That’s what I did, headed down to Jenner for a paddle. Ray said he’d be down there somewhere so I put my boat in the water and headed down towards the rivers mouth area where I suspected Ray to be in his yak.
Russian River mouth area
Sand survey guy
I’ve seen this guy in the orange before. He carries around a survey stick that marks his spot on a wireless chart. He’s making a recording of the sand profile as it moves around a lot down here. They do this periodically for the water agency.
We paddled along up the shoreline and jumped another eagle out of Eagle’s landing that flew up the river. It was a more mature eagle than the first one we saw earlier. This one just got it’s white tail and head feathers not long ago.
Not too muddy
We found a spot that would work when I realized Ray was in his shorts and there were a lot of nettles in this spot we’d have to go through, but he was game so we did.
Keeping an eye on the boats
After a bit Ray was getting concerned about our boats as we didn’t tie them up and the tide was due to come in so we headed on back to the boats to be sure they wouldn’t float away.
That was a nice day paddling around the estuary and I didn’t have anything planned to do at home so I puttered around the yard for the rest of the day.
