Sunny but cool today at Jenner
I saw Ray’s truck parked in the parking lot at Jenner as I pulled in this morning so I knew he was out there yakking somewhere.
I put my boat in the water and headed on down towards the river’s mouth as I expected to find Ray there.
Ray’s at the mouth
The ocean waves are constantly smashing against the shoreline so it’s sometimes a bit noisy.
Joined by a harbor seal
Haven’t seen these ducks before
We paddled up the back channel of Penny Island with our friend the seal following us and passed by these little ducks feeding in the weeds. They took to the air as we approached and we left the seal there somewhere as it disappeared.
Went to shore for a little walk
You don’t want to slip on these trails
The day was real nice and we were in the sun so we hung there for quite some time before heading back down, back through these big trees and ferns. Ray is going down the hill and grabbing something to stop him as the trail is very slippery here from the recent rains. If one were to slip, they might end up in the river.
I also proceeded down the trail very carefully.
This place is loaded with muskrats
We checked out that nest and then got back in our boats and paddled down the river to the boat ramp and went on home for the day.
It was late in the day and cool at home, so I just got some firewood in and that was my day.
Oh yeah, I did dig up some potatoes from my potato patch just as it was getting dark for dinner.
