Monday February 22, 2021 Jenner CA.
The sun was going to be out and it was a low wind day down at Jenner today, at least that’s what the weather guys said it would be and it was.
I arrived at the river just before one which is good as most people go in the morning and leave by about noon so there’s less people.
Up the river
I put my boat in the water at the boat ramp and headed on up the river stopping along the way.
I like to pull in by those logs up ahead and sit and watch.
One of my spots
This is my spot by the big redwood log looking back down the river.
After a good break there I decided that was far enough up the river so started back down river headed to the river’s mouth area about a mile.
I like to paddle along the shoreline as there’s usually more critters along the edges.
Down along the island
I paddled down the Island’s back channel and stopped in this spot for a bit before continuing on.
I passed by all these gulls resting on the Island’s bottom end.
Headed on over to the river’s open mouth area just up ahead.
I paddled on by these cormorants resting on the sand by the river’s mouth.
As I entered the open mouth I could see all these harbor seals resting on the sand.
Open river’s mouth
I paddled on into the open mouth and sat here for a bit watching and listening to the ocean pounding the rocks just out of sight up ahead.
Sun going down slowly
The low wind died even more so I hang around the mouth area enjoying the sun as it slowly lowered in the sky.
Stars in the water as I sat and enjoyed the day.
As I sat the sun ventured lower in the sky so I started my trip back to the boat ramp about a mile.
The water was real flat now and I wasn’t in a hurry to leave so I took my time.
I was sitting under this tree in my boat when this bird flew in. A green night heron I think.
It wasn’t long before I was back at the boat ramp so I loaded up the boat and drove on home.
It was about 5:30 when I got home and the chickens were on the roost so I shut them up and went in the house for the day.
