It was a windy day
The weather guy said it was going to be windy today. When I arrived at Jenner, the wind was up. I put my boat in the water despite the wind and paddled across to Penny Island. With all the wind, I decided not to paddle down to the open river’s mouth as I could see there was a bit less wind up the river, so I headed that way.
Buzzard rock walk
I was scanning the hillside across the river as I walked up the trail and thought I saw two wild pigs running, but they seemed to be moving too fast for pigs. Looking closer, it turned out to be two frisky young calves running for the fun of it.
While I was standing on buzzard rock, I took this photo of a buzzard sitting on a rock below me. It just popped up there. I think it flew in out of some rocks below me, possibly from sitting on it’s nest? It sorta looks like the buzzard is flying below me.
I sat on the rock for a couple hours before starting down the trail back to my boat.
Most of the trout type fish went to the ocean
I noticed a lack of fish jumping out of the water today. I only saw one do it instead of the many that were jumping out of the water before they opened the river’s mouth yesterday. That would indicate to me that most of the little fish went out into the ocean to continue their journeys.
Terns in the area
The last couple of days, I’ve noticed there are a few terns flying around screeching as they do. I caught these two resting on the end of Penny Island as I approached. They fish from the air, diving when they see a fish.
I took my boat out of the water and went on home for the day and that was my day.
