Just as I was putting my boat in the water this morning, Ray drove in so I waited a bit for him to get his boat in the water and we paddled across the river to Penny Island and then up the south shoreline.
A little walk
Ray and I paddled almost up to the bridge taking our time enjoying the day. On the way back down we stopped at the Swamp rock trail and went for a little walk up the Poison Oak Alley trail that goes up the river along the shoreline.
When we got back to our boats, Ray went on in for the day and I stayed and looked for and ate some black berries.
The black berries were almost gone but I got a few of them and then headed down towards the river’s mouth to check it out.
On the east end of Penny’s Island, these terns were taking it easy. The terns have been around for a bit now, mostly fishing for small fish in the estuary from what I’ve seen. They dive from high in the air on their prey and seem to be pretty good at catching fish.
I continued on down the the river’s mouth area where it was high tide. I sat around for a bit, then headed on in for the day.
I stayed out until almost six PM today before calling it a day and going on home.
Nice day kayaking with low wind.
