Wednesday July 29, 2020 Jenner CA.
I didn’t have anything better to do today so I was off to Jenner to kayak for the day.
It was overcast with high fog which meant the wind was down which is always a good thing which makes for a nice paddle.
I put my boat in the water at the Jenner boat ramp and parked my car and was off headed down river along the island’s shoreline.
Brown pelicans coming out of the sky
Headed to the mouth area
Is that John
I saw this guy doing something over on the shoreline behind me. Could it be John the trash picker upper. He has some heart trouble and hadn’t been doing too good the last time I saw him but I wasn’t sure it was him as this guy looked like he had a beard. I approached and his beard turned into a mask and it was John so I sat in my boat and shot the bull with him for an hour or so while watching the goings on at the mouth.
More pelicans fly in
Sometimes pelicans play with sticks as I’ve seen them do before and I noticed this one flying with a stick. I’ve seen them playing with sticks maneuvering them around in their big bills while sitting on the beach.
Eventually I left the mouth area and started back up the river.
And then headed in to the boat ramp and went on home for the day.
That was a lot of brown pelican’s today. They are fun birds to watch as they do their antics.
Once home it was nap time and that was pretty much my day.
Nice day paddling the estuary with the pelicans.
