Nice day for a paddle
It seemed like a good day to go down to Jenner and go kayaking, so that’s what I did. The wind was down and the sun was out as I put my boat in the water and paddled to this spot across the river at Penny Island where I sat for a good while just enjoying the day.
I did notice the biologists trucks and trailers parked in the parking lot so I knew they were here doing something. I could see them down near the mouth area as I crossed over the river.
Landed for a walk
Biologists show up for some seine netting
I was sitting back in the channel when I noticed the biologists boats heading up river by the boat ramp. They turned and came over by me, so I pulled over to talk with the guys in the rubber boat. Turns out they were going to take samples with the seine net right in front of me.
I took some video of them putting the net out and pulling it in that I may get together and post eventually.
I left them at it after two pulls and went down along the north side of Penny Island where I ran into this female mallard with her little ones that are about half grown. They were feeding along these reeds.
Winds come up
I went on home.
Checking on my new van springs
I’ve been wondering where my new van springs are as I should of heard from the spring guys letting me know they had come in, but no call yet, so I gave them a call. I tried to call several times, but couldn’t get through to anyone as their phones seemed to be jammed up.
I waited an hour and tried again and finally got someone. They said they’d find out exactly when the springs would come in and get back to me by tomorrow morning so I wait. I’d like to get them installed before the 4th so I can be off on another adventure, so we’ll see if that works out or not.
That was my day for a nice one.
