My plan was for a hike today, but I felt lazy
I was thinking it would be a good day to do a little hike at Jenner today, just for something a little different.
I arrived at Jenner around eleven to kayak, but first I had to find John the kayak rental guy down there and talk to him about getting a couple kayaks for my eighth grade reunion people later this week. Lucky for me, he was down there so I made some arrangements with him for Thursday evening.
I put my boat in the water and headed on up the river to Eagle’s landing where I had planned to do a little hike up the hill, but just felt too lazy to get into it, so I just sat around the area for an hour or so.
But, finally, I got it in gear and landed my boat on the shore at Eagle’s landing, also known as Poison oak alley.
I made it to the spot I wanted. Of course, it went from overcast to sunny as I was headed up the hill, so I got a little on the hot side.
Now, as I said, the sun had come out and I was hot and a bit on the tired side, what I needed was some shade, so I went a little further up the hill until I got back in the trees on the trail.
As I got back down to the river, the sun went behind some clouds. I got back in the water and headed slowly back to the Jenner boat ramp area and was off the water around five PM.
Sometimes I have to push myself a little to get going, but then I’m always glad I did get it in gear.
Had a nice day.
