Thursday August 13, 2020 Jenner CA.
I always check the wind at the river and the tide before going out. If the wind is down it’s a good day to go so off I went.
I arrived just after noon and put my boat in the water at the Jenner boat ramp.
Upstream to avoid the people
There were quite a few boats in the water especially down by the mouth so I opted to go up stream to avoid them and let them go home before I went down to the mouth area.
Lots of pelicans
The brown pelicans and a few harbor seals were eating what the fishermen call bait fish, small fish 4 to 6 inches long. There’s big schools of them in the estuary right now which came in from the ocean.
Down the back channel
Stick in a bill
River’s mouth area
I paddled over into the mouth and sat and watched. It was high tide so lots of water was coming into the river from the ocean so I had to work a bit to stay in this spot. This is the right side of the open mouth looking out into the ocean with lots of brown pelicans resting on the shore and in the water and in the air.
Pelican sort of day
I’d have to say that was a pelican day, for sure eh.
I loaded my boat and went on home for the day for a nap of course.
Nice way to finish the day
After that nice paddle I didn’t have much energy so mostly sat around eating grapes and raspberries and some mulberries too until dark.
The evening was so nice I stayed out chair hopping until just after dark.
