Thursday April 24, 2014 Jenner CA.
But first, I had to go to my dentist for a cleaning and check up and after that, I headed down to Jenner to paddle for the day.
There was a real light fog moving in and out at Jenner when I got there and the wind was down. I put my boat in the water and crossed over the river to the east end of Penny Island and went on down the back channel of the island.
Near the west end, I ran into Ray, John and Steve in their kayaks. We headed back up the river.
A little walk in the swamp
We put ashore just past the island for a little walk. Steve catches poison oak, so he continued on up the river a ways where we’d meet him later.
So, on the way back they were wondering around and I said, ok, find the trail back out, only because I’ve had a hard time finding it in the past.
Well, they didn’t find it and where I thought it was, wasn’t, but I’d been in this situation before here, so I found it shortly and we went on back to our boats.
We continued on up the river to Eagle’s Landing where we met back up with Steve.
We hung around that area for a bit, before heading back down the river.
Steve and I left John and Ray at the take out and continued on down towards the river’s mouth area.
There were a bunch of terns on the west end of Penny Island, just resting.
The river’s mouth area
Down by the river’s mouth there were a bunch of people on the beach checking out the mouth action. Thought they might be school kids, but it was after five PM, so just some people watching.
Caught in the rain
After awhile we headed back up the river and Steve wanted to go back up to Eagle’s landing , so I said ok and we headed for it. But before we cleared the east end of Penny Island a light rain started and it didn’t look like it was going to stop, so we changed our minds and went to the boat take out.
Another nice day.
