Jenner Paddle

Wednesday, Apr. 24, 2013, Jenner, CA.

Not much going on at Jenner today.

 

Dave and Joanne came by today for a couple hour visit. Then Steve showed up. We had a nice visit, catching up on things. Around two pm, Steve and I went down to Jenner for a yak. There was a light breeze with high fog and it was a little on the chilly side.

We put our boats in the water and crossed over to Penny Island and then worked our way up the river about a mile along the south shore. It was low tide and not much going on as far as critters today.

We took our time and took a lot of breaks along the way, just enjoying the day. On the way back down the river, we went over to Paddy’s Rock and put ashore for a short walk on the gravel bar there.

Below, you can see where we put ashore at Paddy’s rock, which is that thing just to the right of my kayak.

Across the river from Paddy’s rock the river looked real nice as you can see below.

After awhile we headed further down the river.  It was a little chilly so Steve headed for the take out, while I continued down the back side of Penny Island and headed for the river’s mouth.

Interesting, that today, there wasn’t even one seal in the water when I got there, maybe because it was low tide. High tide brings a lot of food into the river with all the salt water.

Below is a picture of the river’s mouth, looking out toward the Pacific Ocean.

Like I said, it was a little on the chilly side, so I didn’t stay too long and headed back to the take out area and was off the water around six thirty and went home.

Even though it wasn’t a critter day, it was still a nice day.
