Thursday October 12, 2017 Jenner CA.
It was supposed to be a bit windy today, but I thought I’d kayak anyway.
On the way down I stopped at the Vacation Beach Dam to see if the dam guys were working on the dam.
Two Johns working on replacing some of the dam’s anchors and beams that had a lot of corrosion.
Drove to the Jenner overlook
I drove on down to the Jenner overlook to have a look.
River’s mouth is closed
Time for a paddle
I drove back to the Jenner boat ramp and put my boat in the water and paddled across the river to Penny Island and turned up. I paddled into this spot on the upper end of Penny island were a sat for a good while enjoying the day. So far the wind was down.
I wasn’t eager to paddle anywhere today, so I just worked my way up the river a short distance taking it easy. This was as far as I went today, Eagles Landing. I rested here then turned around and started back.
Headed for the boat ramp
I stopped on the way home to do some shopping in Guerneville, then went on home and put the stuff away.
Fire prevention work
After a nap, I went outside to see about trimming back some berry vines and brush for fire prevention.
So far all the fires near us are staying away but this work just needs to be done for the future.
The rest of the day was spent chair hopping and doing some planning on what I need to do to repair the bridge bulkhead.
That was my day…..
