Older age likes cozy
I woke to a light rain and the weather guy said it was likely going to shower and drizzle today. My older age says I should stay home where it is nice and cozy, but if I listened to my older age, I’d stay home too much and not get out in some interesting weather, so I got it going and headed down to the river to kayak.
When I arrived at Jenner, the drizzle had stopped. As I was putting my boat in the water, John the kayak renter guy pulled into the ramp in his kayak. As I put my car away, a lady came up to me and said her name was Meg and she was a blog reader of mine. Her and her friend were just coming in from an early paddle.
I pulled on my rain pants and got in my boat.
Big cold drops
John and I shot the bull for a half hour or so and by that time a light rain had started. I paddled across the river to Penny Island where I hoped to get out of the rain under these big trees, but the rain had already saturated them and they where dropping big cold drops off their limbs, so I didn’t stay there long.
The rain picked up a bit and I had to put my camera away.
I paddled on up the river in the light rain passing some cormorants fishing. I saw one of them get a small flounder about three or four inches long. They continued to fish around me and I shot this picture after the rain stopped.
The rains stop
The geese are quiet
I think I was in that spot for about and hour before I continued on down to the river’s mouth area.
Mouth is sorta closed
Checking out the river’s mouth, I found it to be closed a bit, but the sand isn’t that high and it could open again by itself. There were seals and seagulls resting on the beach. You can see the sand isn’t much higher than the river’s water level, only about a foot.
I came on home and just puttered around and did some watering and that was my day.
