Nice day for a paddle
I met Ray and his brother John down at the Jenner boat ramp this morning. They were there as I arrived and already had their boat in the water. So I found them shooting the bull at the end of the boat ramp.
I unloaded my boat and parked the car and joined them as we put our boats in the water.
Headed to the mouth area

Waves were breaking over the sandy beach
Headed up the river
Too early for ripe berries here
We paddled on up the island’s back channel and I told the guys I wanted to stop up there just up ahead in the green grass to look for ripe blackberries so we pulled in here and looked for berries to eat.
It was a little too early for them in this area, but we did get a few before continuing on up the river.
Indian Rock Trailhead
Views from the rock
Different route back down
We spent some time resting and shooting the bull on the rock before starting back down the hill going a different route back.
Checking out the huge nests
There were some huge stick piles in some of the trees I wanted to check out so John climbed up to have a look. He said there was bird nest depressions in the top of the nests. My guess is owls use them as I’ve seen some owls in the area, but I’m not really sure what is using these nests. They are very old and the sticks look like they’ve been there a very long time.
Back to the boat ramp
Our boats were still tied up down at the river so we hopped in and slowly worked our way back to the Jenner boat ramp and pulled out and went on home for the day.
All that tired me out enough to wear me out so that was pretty much it for me today.
Nice day on the water and a nice hike too.
