Kayaking at Jenner CA.
We are supposed to have some rain coming into the area tonight so I thought I better get down to Jenner for a yak while I can.
Turned back here at Muskrat
Penny island walk
A butchering ring
I was looking around and noticed this ring hanging up in the tree just in front of the old barn. It looked like a place to hang an animal to butcher it and I bet a lot of things got butchered here over the years.
Looking for wild berries
One of the reasons I wanted to walk on the island was to check out the wild berries there. I figured it was a bit early yet but if you don’t look you can miss out.
I did find a couple of wild plums from a tree I planted there a few years ago. They were green but still good, not sour at all. That’s the first fruit I’ve gotten off the tree so far. Looking forward to more as the tree seems to be doing well.
Paddled down along the island
Jenner boat ramp
That was a good yak and I headed on home for the day for a much needed nap.
Planted some stuff
After the nap it was too late in the day to do much. I did put some stuff away to be ready for the rain tomorrow. I was also able to get some garden seeds planted as the rain helps things come up fast. I planted some squash and some tomatoes and some giant pumpkin seeds I’ve had around that don’t seem to want to come up as the first ones I planted a bit ago didn’t come up.
Once chick didn’t make it
I was watching my new peeps and noticed one of them had an injury on it’s side with feathers missing and it looked like it wasn’t going to make it. It died shortly. I think this one was injured when I got it from the store. Otherwise the other chicks seem to be doing well.
That was it for me today for another nice day.
