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.
I decided to head on down to the river’s ‘mouth area down this way. Lots of birds down that way.
On the way I passed by this river otter hunting along the shoreline for things to eat.
The otter was going the opposite way I was going so I left it and continued on down this way to the open mouth.
Paddled into the river’s open mouth
I worked my way into the channel over by the rocks up ahead to check things out.
The mouth opened a couple days ago and really blew the sandy beach out when it opened.
Looking out into the Pacific ocean through the open mouth.
I paddled over by that big rock called Haystack where I sat and watched. Some geese were resting on the sand.
This was looking out the open mouth from the spot by the big rock.
After awhile I turned around and started back up the river. I went by all these birds resting here.
Checking out the birds
I stopped for a bit to check out the birds.
The geese were watching me but didn’t fly off.
Otters still hunting
From there I paddled across the river again and ran into the otter still hunting away.
I watched the otter for a bit then continued on up the river along it’s north shoreline.
I see some grebe have arrived for the winter.
I paddled by these two cormorants preening on the rock.
The trash picker upper
As I approached the boat ramp I could see John who lives down here picking up trash on the shoreline.
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.
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.
