Needed a paddle

I hadn’t been to Jenner for a paddle for awhile, so I headed on down that way today. The sun was out and the wind was low so it looked like it was going to be a nice day and it was.

I paddled across the river to Penny Island and down along the side headed down river which looked like this.russianriver


I paddled on by this great blue heron fishing away.heron


Seemed like a lot of geese around today

Just off the lower end of the island I passed by these geese.geese


And not far from them I passed by more geese just enjoying themselves in the sun.gooses


Headed to the open river’s mouth area

I could see the river’s mouth was open as I headed on down that way.mouth


And lot of birds where flying around down there as I approached.birds


It was going to high tide and there were some big waves breaking on the rocks as I watched.ocean


Harbor seals sunning

I watched some harbor seals taking it easy on the right side of the open mouth.seal2


Headed back up the river

I hung around the mouth area for about an hour then headed back up the river. A lot of birds had landed on the water since I went by here a bit earlier. Mostly seagulls and pelicans.islandirds


I decided to go up the back channel of he island and went past these sleeping geese.goose


I stopped at this spot and sat and watched for a bit, taking a bit of a nap.jenner


Brown pelicans where fishing away

Eventually I paddled up just above the island where I ran into these brown pelicans doing some fishing.pels


They would take off and then dive on fish as I watched.pelsplash


Didn’t go far up the river

I paddled only a short ways up the river and sat for a good while, then headed back down he river.back


I slowly worked my way back down the river to the boat ramp and went on home for the day.

Van’s oil change

At home I had plans to change the oil and filter in the van, so after a little nap, I got the stuff together and did that. I did drop the old filter into the oil drain pot, which made a big splash and spilled oil out on the ground which made a bit of a mess, but other than that, it went well and I got her done.

I spent the rest of the day sitting around in the yard just enjoying the day and that was my day for a nice one.

  1. If you get this comment she’s working real good. The only glitch I noticed was when I signed on the blog was September 6, when I clicked home page I got this blog which was yesterday.
