Rains are coming
It sounds like there is a lot of rain coming our way, so I thought I better get down to Jenner for a yak before it hits.
Open and low tide at the river’s mouth
I continued on up the river along it’s north shoreline which I rarely do.
How Paddy’s Rock might have gotten it’s name
I paddled up to Paddy’s rock. I don’t know how Paddy’s Rock got it’s name. But I think Paddy knew about the deep hole just off to it’s right and fished off the rock in the good ol fishing days. You can’t really tell there is a big hole there. I only knew about it because I saw the biologists trying to hit it one day to take some measurements.
Put the boat in a drift
I circled around Paddy’s rock and rested a bit there, then moved my boat to the middle of the river and put it in drift mode and headed on down slowly.
On the upper end of Penny Island I spotted a bunch of ducks resting on the water.
I think I have an exhaust leak
I headed on home thinking I needed to repair what I hoped was just a leak in my muffler pipe. My car has been sounding like it was going to fall apart for the last couple days and I was pretty sure something was wrong in the exhaust system back by the muffler.
I’d already had an idea how to fix it as I had been thinking about it on the way home.
I’ll test that out the next time I drive it.
That pretty much wrapped up my day.
