Tuesday June 14, 2016 Guerneville CA.
Headed to the river’s overlook
Lots of harbor seals
Didn’t need the boat ramp today
But I wasn’t in the mood and decided to go back to Guerneville and see how they were doing installing the Lower Russian River dams for the season.
Vacation beach dam installation
My first stop was the Vacation beach road and dam. I pulled into the road that was blocked by some county road guys taking their lunch break which gave me a chance to chat with them for a bit. I asked them if the dam installing crew was down there putting in the dam. They said they had been but they were now back at the county road yard taking their lunch break. So I asked if they’d watch my car as it was parked in front of a no parking sign and they said they would.
The guys can’t back any water up until the 16th of June, so they do it all except the center boards that back the river up which they will start installing around the 16th.
I went back to my car and shoot the bull with the county guys until it was time for them to go back to work, so I headed to the Guerneville dam to see how that one was coming along.
Guerneville River access sucks
Guerneville beach dam construction
I went on home from there and spent the rest of the day puttering around in the yard.
