Saturday August 29, 2015 Monte Rio CA.
Ray came by first thing this morning and I shot the bull with him for awhile catching up on things. After that, I decided to go down to Monte Rio to kayak as I haven’t been to the Monte Rio area for awhile and it’s always a nice paddle. Today, I decided to head on down the river a ways, maybe to Rein’s beach, also known as the Moscow hole.
I put in at the boat ramp at Monte Rio around noon and headed on down the river taking it easy. I spied a cormorant diving close by so watched it for a bit. I saw it come up with a crawfish and eat it, but didn’t get a pic of that.
I pulled into a spot I like at the Sheridan beach and was relaxing when all of a sudden there was a big commotion coming through the brush just to the side of me and these big ol bovinosarous popped out of the bushes and hurriedly headed for the water for a drink. I thought they might attack, but they seemed more interested in a drink. When they spotted me in my boat, they bolted and headed back into the bushes.
I had a nice paddle at Monte Rio and went on home for the day where I puttered in the yard and did mostly nothing. :O)
