Monday June 5, 2017 Jenner CA.
I was off to Jenner around noon today. There was to be some wind but I didn’t care.
The wind wasn’t bad as I put my boat in the water. I had already decided to head down to the river’s mouth where the river dumps into the ocean as I hadn’t been down that way in awhile.
Paddled down to the mouth area
These two merganser ducks were thinking I was too close, but they were in the way of where I wanted to go, so they gave way and went for a swim and let me pass by as I wanted to go deeper into the mouth in back of the rock.
Ocean’s out there
Heading back up the river
Working my way back to the boat ramp
I paddled on up around the back side of Penny Island taking it easy and stopping often and made my way back to the boat ramp and went on home for the day.
Always blackberry vines to cut
After a nap at home I went out in the yard and puttered. I clipped some wild blackberry vines which is a never ending task and with the heavy winter rains the vines are growing fast.
Deer in the yard
While I was sitting in one of my chairs I spotted a deer with her two little ones trotting into my yard like they owned the place. I’ve spent the last few days plugging holes in the fence trying to keep them out, so this shouldn’t be.
After spending some time chasing them out, I looked in the area I thought they came in and all I could see is maybe they squeezed through the spaces in the old gate at that location. So I got some boards and some screws and put small boards between all the spaces to make them smaller hoping this might help.
That was pretty much my day for mostly a good one, except maybe finding the deer in the yard.
