A Nice Paddle at Jenner and I Transplant a Grape Plant I Started Last Year

Wednesday April 18, 2018 Jenner CA.

Kayaking around Jenner

I headed on down to Jenner again today to do some more kayaking.

It was a bit overcast but the wind was down as I paddled across to Penny Island and decided to head down towards the river’s mouth area to check out the new harbor seal pups.river1

 

Big Splashes

On the way over to the mouth area, I ran into some big splashes that turned out to be harbor seals frolicking in the water.splash3

 

Lots of harbor seals on the beaches

I’m paddling down this way where I see a lot of harbor seals resting on the sandy beaches up ahead.mouth4

 

This years seal pups

There’s a couple fresh pups in this group.seal5

 

Up ahead I see lots more seals as I approach the mouth area.seals7

 

River’s mouth area

Here’s some of them checking me out.seals6

 

The white one in the middle is a new pup. They are often times born white but soon turn to whatever color they are going to be.seal8

 

River’s end

I continued paddling past the open mouth to the end of the river where I sat for a bit. These seals came over to check me out.seals8

 

Eventually I paddled out of that area going by these birds, some seagulls and some terns.birds10

 

I saw this crow over on shore as it came down to the river’s edge to get a drink of water.crow11

 

And I went by this merganser duck pair, the female is out in front.ducks12

 

Paddling up the river a bit

I paddled up past Penny Island and stopped in this spot for a rest before continuing on up along here.river13

 

Flowery bush

Eventually I made it up to Muskrat where there is this nice green grass. I noticed the bush with white flowers which turned out to be an elder berry bush.elderberry15

 

After a good break by the elder berry bush I started back down the river stopping here and there. Here’s one of the spots I stopped at.hill16

 

Not into shopping, but

From there I made it in to the boat ramp and headed on home. I was thinking of stopping in town to shop some, but I wasn’t really into it. But when I got back to Guerneville I was getting hungry so I thought it would be a good idea to shop for some food which I did and went home and put the stuff away.

Then a nap and eventually I went outside to do some puttering in the yard.

Transplanting my grape plant

I dug up the new grape plant I wanted to transplant to the edge of my not built yet chicken run so it will get a good start there.

Here’s the new grape plant I planted.grape

 

I spent the rest of the day chair hopping around the yard and that was my day for a good one.
