A nice fall day for a paddle
I put in at Jenner this morning around 11:30. It was a bit overcast, but the sun was on it’s way and the wind was down too, so it looked like it was going to be a good day and it was.
Not one eagle but two eagles
From there I crossed over to the other side and was paddling down just past this spot when a big bird flew over my head heading back to this spot I call Eagle’s landing. I noticed it was a bald headed eagle as it flew over my head, so I turned and watched the bird to see if it was going to land or not at eagle’s landing. It turned into the trees and landed somewhere so I paddled back up to here to see if I could find it in the trees in front of me.
Two of them in the trees
It looked so nice I had to paddle down there
Big ocean waves broke on the rocks
A bunch of harbor seals
And some deer on the island
As I approached the lower end of Penny Island I could see a few deer grazing the grasses there.
Here’s a young spike which means he’s about a year old. These deer live on and off the island and think nothing of just swimming across the channel to get to and from the island. They don’t have to worry about getting their clothes wet so don’t seem to mind swimming the water at all.
Going on in for the day
I put the boat on the car and went on home.
Fixed some muddy spots in the yard
After a short nap I went outside and rounded up the wheelbarrow and a shovel. I loaded the wheelbarrow with redwood mulch. During the last rain I found some muddy spots I had to walk through in the yard, so I put a layer of mulch on those spots which should take care of the mud.
Back to town to pick up some fresh salmon
That was pretty much it for the day, however a friend was bringing me some fresh frozen salmon down from Port Orford Oregon and I had to meet him in Guerneville at the Bullpen bar at 8PM to pick up the salmon.
Me in a bar
Well that’s something I never do around here. I’m not a bar type person so I’ve never been in most of the bars in Guerneville. My friend plays pool here every Wednesday night.
My friend was there, but he had forgotten the fish, so we shot the bull for a bit before he had to play pool with his friends and made arrangements for me to get the fish before he heads back up to Oregon.
That was my day.
