Good to go
So yes I made it to my chiropractor’s appointment in Forestville on time today. He’s basically adjusting me to make sure all my nerves are functioning properly for the treatment of leaky gut, which can be caused from my corn sensitivity problem. He didn’t find much today so said I was good to go for now so I didn’t make any more appointments with him.
I did ask him if he had any other corn sensitive people as I’ve asked this of all the western type doctors I’ve come in contact and they say no, no corn problem people.
Check out Dr. Bergman on YouTube
His answer was yes, he has multiple people trying to rid themselves of corn which was a surprise to me. I advised him to tell his patients about Dr. Bergman on You Tube if he wanted to help them out. I didn’t tell him he might learn something from the guy also as a chiropractor. :O) He will learn that for himself when he checks him out. :O)
Stopping at the parts store
Anyway from there I drove on down to Monte Rio to kayak for the day stopping at the parts store there. I wanted to get some heater hose for my van project and as long as I was there I asked if he had any gas caps in stock as I left mine at a gas station about a month ago. He had one and my heater hose so I was happy.
From there it was only a short drove to the boat ramp on the river where I put my boat in the water to a nice day.
Paddling down the river
Shooting the bull with Darwin
I stopped and shot the bull with him for about a half hour. Not much in the way of fish action today.
I think this old guy knows me well
This Seaeagle has been down here for awhile with no one claiming it. It’s loose and the bow rope is stuck on the trees. It broke loose from someone up the river. It’s fairly new, maybe a year old and costs about 8 hundred dollars. I don’t need one or I’d pick it up as river salvage if I wanted it. Maybe the owner will see this or hear about it?
Villa Grande Hole
Lots of river otters
Waiting for the otters to pass
They were fishing along the sides of the river headed up river the way I was going. From past experience I knew if I pulled ahead of them and waited for them to pass by I might get some good pictures of them.
Pulled onto this spot to wait for the otters
I puled onto the dead trees and grounded my boat on the gravel there which would also help get some good photos as the boat would be still and not moving on the water which makes for clearer pictures of things. So I wait for the otters to come by and pass in front of me maybe.
Quite the commotion
Gave up on the otters
Most of the other otters continued up the river so I did too. I was going to try and catch them but I realized they were moving too fast and I didn’t want to go up the that fast so I gave it up and stopped in these weeds for a bit.
The otters returned
Aha, the otters have returned back down the river maybe to get back together with the one eating the fish.
Herons fish off the otters
There’s some otters on the left and the great blue heron is walking over to get close to them. The herons know the otters will spook some fish out of the weeds so they fish off the otters often. One way I find the otters is to watch for the herons doing this and then I will spot the otters fishing away in the weeds.
The otters continued back down the river so I left them and continue on up the river stopping in these weeds for a bit. Stopping in the weeds keeps my boat from drifting down river in the current so that’s one reason I pull into them.
A place to rest you wouldn’t expect
I continued on up the river going through this current at the bottom end of the slot. I know if I pull my boat up behind anything that is poking up in the water I can stop and rest as the water pulls the boat right up to the protrusion so it’s easy to rest the boat a bit.
Back to Monte Rio
I took my boat out and went on home for the day and that was pretty much my day.
