Road guys working in Jenner
The weather guys said it was going to be a nice day at Jenner to kayak so off I went.
There were road construction people all over Jenner as I drove on in to the boat ramp.
I put the boat in the water and paddled across the river to Penny Island and stopped in this spot. I could see the road guys working on putting in a new guard rail where people seem to drive into the river. They were also putting up speed indicator signs for cars and signs for the new cross walk
Lost parking spots
Unfortunately all this construction has knocked out a good number of the already scarce parking spots in town. I think they’ve knocked out more than ten of them some around the new cross walk and a bunch around where the new guard rail is located. No one seems to care.
The grebe gang
Eventually I worked my way down along the side of Penny Island. I saw these grebe in the water. Their numbers seem to be increasing. I’ve been by them before and they are sorta use to me so I paddled over to see if I could join them some.

Paddling around Penny Island
A good spot
I went in for the day, put my boat on the car and drove on home for the day.
Figuring out my crane for the van
The sun was still out when I got home so I puttered in the yard for a bit and then studied how to mount my winch on the back of the van for my motorcycle crane to lift a cycle up onto the back bumper.
I got some ideas which I think will work. I’ll construct a crane unit and try it to see what works and modify it if I have to.
As the sun went behind the mountains to my west the day cooled down so I went into the house and that was it for me today.
