My DSL is down
I got up this morning and turned on my computer and I had no DSL connection to the internet. I called my provider and of course they wanted me to test this and that. I wasn’t in a good mood and gave the guy a hard time saying a customer shouldn’t have to test the phone companies line for them, but in the end, I apologized for being a hard nose and said I’d check out my modem when I got home this afternoon by borrowing my brothers modem and trying it out. Of course I’ve done this about twenty times over the last twenty years and it’s always the phone line is bad.
Sounds like the Monte Rio boat ramp will remain open
As I was driving through Monte Rio this morning, I could see they were setting up the parking lot for the special event. I almost drove by, but at the last second I decided to go see if the boat ramp was open or closed? I found the boat ramp road open, so I drove down that way and got out at the ramp. Just as I got out a truck pulled up behind me.
A lady said she was with the Monte Rio Parks and recreation. She said her name was Linda, I think. Right away she said something about the beach that I didn’t quite hear. I pointed to the closed ramp sign and said I was was concerned about the sign. She said they weren’t going to close the boat ramp but it would be hard to use during the event. Before she could get that last part out, I said I’d be no where near the area during that time and she drove away. Good that she came by when she did, so I wouldn’t have to second guess what was going on.
Ok, so it sounds like the boat ramp will remain open as it should, so I left and continued on down to Jenner to kayak for the day.
Pulled into Jenner
It was overcast and the fog was going in and out, but the wind was down so things looked real good for a nice day.

River’s mouth looks mostly closed
I got back in my boat and headed on down to check out the river’s mouth. I found the river’s mouth mostly closed with about a foot of sand above the river’s water level. High tides can still make it over the sand. It could stay closed or the high tides might open it again, only time will tell.
I hung around the mouth area for awhile then headed on back in for the day. I passed by this pair of mallard ducks and noticed they had one little ducky with them. Only one little ducky means it’s a hard life for ducky’s in this area.
I continued to the boat ramp and went on home for the day.
Then darn modem is dead
I was going to get my brothers modem, but he wasn’t home, so I just puttered around in the yard. Eventually, my brother came home and I went over to borrow his modem. I hooked his modem to my line and it worked, so my modem is bad and I will have to purchase a new one tomorrow. Until then, I talked my brother out of his modem so I can publish this blog tonight.
