Looking for fishermen
I thought the river might be open to fishing today so I drove on down to Guerneville to see if there were any fishermen at the beach but I didn’t see any so maybe the river isn’t open yet?
I then drove on down to the Monte Rio boat ramp to see if there were any fishermen down there. There was only one, Bill a homeless guy that lives in his car with his dog. He thought the river was open but he didn’t’ have any way to go online to check it out. I shot the bull with him for a bit then drove on down to Jenner.
Headed to Jenner for a yak
Jenner is a no fishing area so no fishermen here either. I looked around the boat ramp and out on the river and it appeared I was the only one going boating today which always amazes me as there’s thousands of people not far away from here. But I like it this way.
The wind was down but there was a chilly breeze coming off the ocean which just might do me in although I dressed warm.
Headed to the mouth
The cool breeze coming in off the ocean was getting to me and I was getting a real chill.
It looked like the river’s mouth would stay open for awhile which would be good for spawning fish coming into the river to spawn.
It was, but I was chilled through and needed to warm up so after a bit I headed on in for the day.
Looking for warm
It took the car’s heater to warm me up as I drove on home.
Chicken in the pot
After a short nap when I got home I got the Instant Pot out and prepped my whole chicken for the pot. I added a few potatoes to the mix around the sides even though they’d get overcooked which would be ok.
I set the timer and then went outside to work on some stuff.
Fasten down the roof panels
I had laid the plastic sheets on the roof awhile back with intensions of fastening them down but never got around to it. The last rain blow a lot and my chickens got a little wet from all the leaks and when the sheets blow off.
Scared the chickens
I had more to do but ran out of time. The chickens started coming in to roost for the night and went berserk with freight when they saw me with a plastic sheet so I stopped for the day.
Thinking yummy chicken
By now I was thinking about my roosted chicken in the cooker and knew it was done and ready to go so in the house I went.
Needless to say that was yummy. I mashed the potatoes with a fork in a bowl and added some spices and some of the chicken broth in the bottom of the pot and yummy again. By now I was full as one should be on Thanksgiving day.
Once I get most of the meat off the bones I will throw the bones back in the pot with the broth that is already in there and make some more broth for chicken noodle soup. More yummies.
Nice day, I ate well.
