Wednesday March 16, 2016 Jenner CA.
The hives were over active last night, so I didn’t get much sleep and I was pretty tired out when I got it going this morning. I’m not able to take any antihistamines for a week before my allergy appointment which makes things even tougher. :O) They are supposed to interfere with the tests they want to do.
I had planned to go kayaking down at Jenner, but my energy level wasn’t very good.
I did get it going
I had put my sleeping foam and a pillow in back of the car yesterday, so I crawled into the back and laid down for a nap and was doing real well except I didn’t open the windows enough and it got hot and my hives took off again after about a half hour or so.
Kayakers on the water
The water was still moving fairly fast from the recent rains. I could see two kayaks down river and was wondering how they’d get back up the river, so I kept an eye on them to see what they’d do. They were sitting in an eddy from the lower end of Penny Island. But if they go down towards the mouth, the current is too strong and they could go out in the ocean if they weren’t careful.
What I’d do
The current going back up the middle of the river was too strong to paddle against also. What would they do? I would go to the Island and paddle up along it’s edge until I got above the visitor center a ways and then cross and let the current carry me down to the boat ramp, but what would they do?
They just stayed in the same spot for a long time I guess deciding what to do.
Drove to the overlook
Eventually I drove on up to the overlook at the mouth to have a look.
I spotted the kayakers
I don’t think that was the plan and I hope they had a cell phone. They did the right thing if they didn’t have the experience to handle the faster river water.
Plumb tired out
I thought about putting my boat in the water, but I was just too plumb tired out and the water was still flowing fairly fast, so I went on home for the day.
The golf cart dies again
Tom towed his broke down golf cart over. It finally died completely so not being just intermittent, I should be able to find out what is wrong with it,. Only thing is he didn’t leave me the battery puller strap, so I couldn’t move the batteries to work on it.
That was pretty much my day.
