Lots of wild life at Jenner today
Yesterday, I woke up with a sinus headache, so I didn’t get going all day. Just stayed in the house, and couldn’t seem to get started on anything, not even a blog.
But today, I woke feeling much better and was at Jenner around noon and put my boat in the water. It was a beautiful day. Sunny, and calm.
I paddled across to Penny Island and sat for awhile checking out what was going on in the water and in Jenner. Nothing real exciting, but nice just the same.
After awhile I started working my way up the river to just past Eagle’s landing where I sat around for awhile watching from there and eventually headed back down the river on the south side.
Just before I got to the east end of Penny Island an otter surfaced not far in front of me. I watched it for awhile and then it lost me in some bushes and I didn’t see it again.
The river’s mouth is open
I paddled on down to the river’s mouth to check it out. It was open and since it was high tide, which means the river water wasn’t flowing in or out, I could get real close to the ocean without being sucked on out. Being calm helps too.
For you guys with not so good eyes, I zoomed in for you. This is Ken in front of Goat Rock. Looks like fun, but I stay in the river. Ken has what they call a dry suit on and knows what he is doing. Only a fool goes out in this water without a wetsuit or a dry suit as the coldness of the water can kill you in less then a half hour. Ken is properly suited.
Eventually, Ken came back in. Said he was having too much fun, but if he stayed out any longer he would be too worn out to work tomorrow. I told him to get retired. :O)
It was so nice out, I took my time going back in, but eventually I made it back to the launch area and pulled my boat out for the day and went home.
Real nice day kayaking Jenner.
