Headed for Jenner
It looked like a good day to go on down and kayak Jenner so I was off once I got it going today.
Wood on the ramp
The boat ramp was all plugged up with wood debrie from the mouth being closed the other day from the rough ocean but now the water level was down and the mouth was open. I had to move a bunch of it off the ramp to back my car down to the water. Later I noticed a sign on the visitor’s center saying the mouth would be opened on the tenth, yesterday.
So I put the boat in the water and parked the car. Since I was at the mouth last time I was down here I decided to paddle up the river about a mile taking my time.
Paddled to Muskrat
Staying in the sun
Shallow spot up ahead
Started for the mouth but
Deer checks me out
I put the boat on the car and drove on home for the day for a nap and something to eat.
After that I finished up some bread dough I was making. I’m trying some rye flour in it for the second time. I set it aside to rise for the first time
After that I went out and took care of the chickens which were doing just fine.
Checking out mufflers
Can be repaired
It looks worse than it is. It’s welded in and the rig is not licensed so I need to fix it good enough to drive up into the hills around here. I think I can repair it enough to work for my purposes. Now that I know what needs to be done I’ll get some supplies and get it fixed up.
On the way down to kayak today I stopped at the parts store and ordered up a new fan belt for the Toyota as the old one was a bit on the cracked side.
Maybe the car one will work
I also went under my car to see if the muffler I bought for it would fit as I thought it would not once I received it in the mail. But looking at it, I think it might fit so I’ll have to give it a try when I get enough time to deal with it as it’s likely going to be a pain as it’s old and rusty and will be hard to get the old one off.
Tree pruning time
I let the chickens out to graze and got my pruners and started pruning some of the fruit trees as it’s that time of year again. I only got two peach trees done but it’s a start.
Punched it down
Once the chickens were in their roost I went on in the house and punched the bread dough down and put it in a pan to rise again and will cook it later.
