Checking Out the Newly Opened River’s Mouth at Jenner

Thursday October 5, 2017 Jenner CA.

Nice day for a yak

The sun was out and the wind was down as I pulled into Jenner this morning for a yak.

I put the boat in the water and parked the car. I paddled across the river to Penny Island and sat here for a bit thinking about which way to go today.river1

 

I decided to head on down to the river’s ‘mouth area down this way. Lots of birds down that way.birds2

 

Otter hunting

On the way I passed by this river otter hunting along the shoreline for things to eat.otter3

 

The otter was going the opposite way I was going so I left it and continued on down this way to the open mouth.river4

 

Paddled into the river’s open mouth

I worked my way into the channel over by the rocks up ahead to check things out.mouth5

 

The mouth opened a couple days ago and really blew the sandy beach out when it opened.

I paddled over by that big rock called Haystack where I sat and watched. Some geese were resting on the sand.geese7

 

This was looking out the open mouth from the spot by the big rock.ocean8

 

After awhile I turned around and started back up the river. I went by all these birds resting here.birds9

 

Checking out the birds

I stopped for a bit to check out the birds.birds10

Otters still hunting

From there I paddled across the river again and ran into the otter still hunting away.otter12

 

I watched the otter for a bit then continued on up the river along it’s north shoreline.

Grebe arrive

I see some grebe have arrived for the winter.grebe13

 

I paddled by these two cormorants preening on the rock.cormorants14

 

The trash picker upper

As I approached the boat ramp I could see John who lives down here picking up trash on the shoreline.john

 

I stopped and talked with John for a bit then landed at the boat ramp and loaded up my car and went on home for the day.

Yard work

I did a little work in the yard moving some more dirt with the wheel barrel and that was my day.

    The water looks so beautiful. I hope you were covered from the sun so no more burn.
