An unusual cloud formation, or is it a portal?
It took me awhile to get going this morning because I had to get my back working first.
Meds, cold packs and much groaning. Hardest part is getting my socks on and shoes, but I did get it going to be down to kayak Jenner around eleven AM.
Ray was already there, just getting ready to put his boat in the water when I arrived. We got the boats in the water and headed across the river to Penny Island and slowly worked our way up the south side of the river. The sun was out and there was a light breeze blowing. The water level was up, but I couldn’t tell if the river’s mouth was closed or open.
We headed up the river at a very leisurely pace stopping along the way. We paddled on past otter’s log and eagle’s landing and on up a ways further, not quite to the highway one bridge.
Eventually, all the clouds around it expanded an disappeared. After awhile, the center thing was the only thing left, but it had expanded to a huge cloud by then. It was still there when we pulled our boats out later.
Not sure what it was, maybe something formed by the wind coming off the coast line?
We pulled our boats into the east end of Penny island and did a little walk.
We headed down to the river’s mouth area to see if it was open or closed.
The river’s mouth is mostly closed
The picture below shows the river mouth. It’s only a trickle, more closed then open. That’s the cement jetty behind it. Only a little water was coming into this from the high tide, not enough for a big fish to get though, only a few inches deep.
Hard to believe it’s winter time.
Had a great day kayaking Jenner.
