Too much work burning me out
I decided I needed to do something different for a change as all this work is starting to burn me out.
I checked the wind report and it said it was going to be a bit windy at Jenner, but I can handle that.
Time for a yak
When I arrived at Jenner the sun was out and the wind was up a bit.
I put the boat in the water and paddled across the river and decided up river would be the way to go as there is less wind that way than down towards the ocean.
Something caught my eye on the shore next to me which turned out to be a bobcat hunting along the shoreline. From experience I immediately turned my boat away from it and headed out from the shore about a hundred feet.
I’ve found that works to keep them from just hopping into the brush and disappearing.
Following the Bobcat
Will the bobcat find the ducks
Bobcats headed for the ducks
The ducks were right by the shoreline as I watched. I couldn’t see the cat, but knew it was getting close.
I looked for the bobcat for a bit but didn’t see it again.
Winds getting stronger
Blackberries on the mind
I find it hard to get pictures of these berries as they disappear rather fast, as least until I get my fill of them which I finally did.
Paddling in the wind
The wind was up now pushing about twenty miles an hour. The trick is to sit low in the boat to make a smaller sail so the wind doesn’t bother the boat much and I can still go along in the wind.
Food for me and food for the chicks
That was a nice paddle. I put the boat on my car and returned to Guerneville to do some shopping for stuff to eat and then drove to Barker Pet Supply to see how my chicken feed order was progressing.
I talked with Karen about the seed I’d need later, but for now I just need some corn less chick feed which she got on the phone and ordered for me which will be in tomorrow so the chicks are taken care of. She will continued to find out about getting some whole type seeds so I can mix my own feed with no corn as the birds get bigger.
All tired out
I drove on home from there and found my self all tired out and not wanting to do much except nap so I did. I got up from my nap and still didn’t have any energy. I wanted to get my supply order together so I can go get the stuff I need tomorrow, but I just couldn’t get it going.
I’ll just have to figure the stuff out tomorrow before I can leave to get the stuff.
Back in the house for another nap and that was it for me today.
