Wednesday November 25, 2015 Jenner CA.
The sun was out and the wind was down as I put my boat in at Jenner this morning, but it was a bit chilly. I paddled across the river to the north side of Penny Island and headed down towards the river’s mouth.
At the lower end of Penny Island I crossed over the river headed towards the open river’s mouth area. The foam is from all the ocean water coming into the river from the ocean as it was just high tide, a high one for here around 6.5 feet. I followed the foam to the open river’s mouth.
I worked my way up to Paddy’s rock as the wind was picking up a bit. The wind wasn’t real bad, but there was a chill in the air. I was getting chilled which means I needed to add another sweater which I didn’t have. I need to do something about that as I like to stay warm and cozy.
The chill was going right though me, so I was thinking I should cut it short today and started heading back in.
When I noticed this kingfisher on a bush. Would it stay for a picture or not? It stayed just long enough to snap a couple shots off and flew off as they usually do, but this time, not before I got a picture.
From there I paddled over to the little channel on the upper end of Penny Island as it’s usually out of the wind, but the tide had dropped by now and there wasn’t any water in that channel, so that didn’t work.
Ok, I’m’ going in for the day and paddled across the river to the boat ramp and went on home for the day.
I had planned to do some work in the yard, but the chill followed me home. I tried to get some stuff done, but it was just too cold for me, so I just puttered a bit and then went in the house for the day so I could warm up.
That was my day.
