Wednesday May 20, 2015 Jenner CA.
As I drove down to Jenner today, I could see the biologists already out working their nets, about three miles up the river from Jenner, further than I’d go today.
As I arrived at Jenner, the wind was really down and it looked like it was going to be a real nice day. I put my put in the water and got in and just sat by the ramp for a bit enjoying the calm day. John the Kayak renter guy paddled up as I was sitting there and we shot the bull for a half hour or so.
Checking for birds along the shoreline
I decided to paddle down past Paddy’s rock to see what birds I could see along the shoreline. This goose was on top of Paddy’s rock and let out the alarm as I approached. The geese like to use the rock for the alarm goose that honks when it sees anything and it honked a lot as I went by. They sure can make a lot of noise.
A few blackberries
I was thinking of checking out the berries on Penny Island but the tide was low and it was muddy on the upper end, so I landed here on the lower end and went to shore. There were only a few berries ripe so I didn’t stay long and besides the tide was coming in and would float my boat away if I left it too long as I didn’t tie it up.
Mouth opened up further last night
On the way down to the river’s mouth, I noticed the foam had moved further up the river which meant the mouth must of opened up further than it was yesterday.
I only stayed at the mouth for a short time then headed on in. As I went by John the trash picker upper’s house he came out and joined me with his boat as I worked my way back to the boat ramp. We shot the bull on the way, of course. :O)
I loaded my boat and went on home for the day.
I spent the rest of the day puttering around in my yard and that was pretty much my day.
