It’s always nicer when the wind is down
I met Ray at the boat ramp at Jenner this morning for a day of kayaking the estuary.
Headed to the river’s mouth area
Enjoying the day
Slow pace up the river
Hike to Swamp Rock
We tried to walk over to swamp rock but the swamp had water in it so we didn’t make it to the rock.
Poison oak trail
We turned and walked up the trail along the river which is called Poison Oak Alley Trail for good reason.
Some kind of horse grass
Here Ray is checking out this horse tail type grass which was growing along the trail. You can’t see it as it’s lost it leaves right now, but the place is also full of poison oak growing in among the grass. It’s dormant right now but still dangerous to people that get it. Ray and I’ve lived with it for years and don’t get it so we are good with it.
We walked up the trail about half mile before stopping for a break under a tree.
We loaded our boats and went on home for the day.
Chicken for dinner
Once home I put a chicken in the pressure cooker and started it cooking while I got something to eat.
Pruning fruit trees while the chicken graze
By now it was time to let the chickens out into the yard to graze so that’s what I did. While they were grazing I did some more pruning on some of my fruit trees until it was time for the chickens to go to roost when I went in the house after getting some firewood in for my woodstove.
That was it for me today for a nice one.
