Thursday December 12, 2019 Jenner CA.
Showers let up
The weather guys said the rain showers would stop around noon today so that meant I should head on down to Jenner for a yak in the estuary.
Only me on the river
I arrived about noon and put my boat in the water, the only one on the river was me. I paddled across to Penny Island and sat a spell to figure out which way to go today. Eventually I headed on up the river a bit.
A favorite spot
I went by here but stopped for awhile to do some contemplating of things. I like the little channel in here and when the water is high enough I like to pull into this spot and sit awhile as it’s a nice spot, one of my favorite ones.
Paddling up the river
Turn around spot
Osprey in the water
Fogs moving around
River’s mouth area always nice
Rough ocean and noisy
Did get some sun
Fox on a rock
As I approached the boat ramp I heard someone behind me say, did you see that fox on the rock you just passed. I said no I was day dreaming and didn’t see it.
Not everyone winters over in Arizona
The guy was in a kayak and it was Oreck a guy form Europe that winters over here in Jenner that I’d talked with before. We chatted for a bit then he took off and I loaded my boat on my car and drove on home.
It was just getting dark as I pulled into my driveway so I checked on the chickens but they weren’t quite ready to go to roost so I went in the house for a nap for a bit, then went out and closed up the chickens for the night.
Nice day paddling on the river.
