Friday September 4, 2020 Jenner CA.
As I put my boat in the water at the Jenner boat ramp and crossed over the river I could see a fog moving in down river towards the ocean. Since I was down that way a couple days ago I decided to paddle up river this time.
I went by this seagull doing some splashing. It was trying to get a small crab down, which it will break up and eat. The estuary has thousands of little two inch dungeon crabs in it this time of year and the seagull eat quite a few of them along with other birds.
I slowly paddled up the river stopping here and there along the way for a bit.
When I exited the creek I was doing some thinking and not paying much attention and before I knew it I was headed down stream when I intended to head up stream. No matter it doesn’t matter where I go. I pretty much play each paddle by ear or and eye.
Wind died down
I paddled by this bird which got about 10 feet from my boat and didn’t seem to mind being that close. For some reason I’m at a loss for this birds name even though I know it. Older age stuff, oh well, it’s not important.
Lots of brown pelicans
As I rounder the bottom of the island I could see all these birds down by the mouth and a seal in the water. It looks like the birds are returning after the forest fire in the area when they seemed to have left the area, mostly pelicans down there.
I went on home and tended to my chickens and than a nap was in order.
I did some chair hopping around the yard in the evening doing not much of anything.
That was my day, had a nice paddle.
