Friday December 4, 2020 Jenner CA.
Two of my favorite people showed up with their new fold up kayaks for a paddle at Jenner today, Cynthia and Rob. I went to school with Cynthia starting with kindergarten.
Their kids gave them these fold up yaks a short while ago and they’d only put them together a few times so far.
I talk too much
Rob started putting things together and I wasn’t helping much as I was shooting the bull with them when they needed to concentrate. At this point it was looking to me like these things wouldn’t be good in the wind but wait, things got better after a few mistakes caused mostly because of me yakking at them.
Doing it right
Well like I said I likely caused most of their problems by yakking with them and distracting them from their work but they finally got them right and we put in at the boat ramp for a very low wind day and there were very few people on the water today.
Headed up the river
We paddled across the river to Penny Island and then headed up the river.
Water company guy
We ran into these two that I’d not seen in a long time. They work for the water company and were getting measurements from the meters below water. I stopped to say hi and see who they were as with the masks I didn’t recognize them. I did know Jeff.
Well this was a rare experience as this group of young otters just sat and looked at us instead of taking off. We paddled up to them within about 20 feet and they were ok with it. No one or no thing would mess with a group of young otters unless they want a lot of trouble.
Closed river mouth area
End of the river
After about a half hour down there at the closed mouth I took them down to the river’s end a short distance from the mouth area.
From there we paddled over to a friend of theirs house, but he wasn’t there.
So we headed to the boat ramp where we took out our boats and they folded theirs back up.
