Kayaking and working in the garden
Yesterday I went down to Jenner to kayak for the day, but when I was done I was too tired out to do a blog so today we’ll do two days of blogs.
Harbor seal acts weird
Sitting by Paddy’s Rock
Shore and forgot my hat
I hung out on the trail there for about a half hour or so just enjoying the day.
I got back in the boat and realized I didn’t have my hat on my head so looked around and found it on shore where I left it.
River otter fishing
I had to wait at the boat ramp for some real slow ladies to get their boats in the water as they were blocking the ramp so I sat in front of it in my boat and saw this otter swim by so watched for it. It was fishing and came up with a fish.
It always amazes me that an otter can pop up right in front of a lot of people and no one else see’s it, such was the case today. There were about ten people on shore and I was the only one that saw it.
Help out Charlie on the way home
Those ladies finally got their boats in the water so I hit the boat ramp and pulled my boat out and went to Monte Rio where I stopped in to visit with Charlie. He wanted some help finding out why his quad runner wouldn’t start. I looked at it with my electrical meter, but he didn’t want to pull any covers off to hunt down the problem so that didn’t’ get fixed. I also looked at a laptop his couldn’t get going and neither could I so I took it home to work on it which I did that night and got it going. It’s still updating.
Today once I got it going I went out to the garden to see what to do.
Digging up the blueberry plants
The blueberry plants in my blueberry patch need to be spread out so I decided to work on that today.
But first the raspberry plants
The bucket is for all the potatoes that got dug up in the process.
Moving soil to make a spot
I pooped out in the afternoon so had something to eat and a nap.
When I got back to it in the late evening the automatic watering system had kicked in so things were all wet and muddy so I postponed moving that bush for now.
One chick not doing well
Two nights ago I found one of the older chicks standing by itself and not with the flock for the night. I picked it up and it felt like it was mostly just feathers. It looked a bit like a runt. I was thinking maybe it wasn’t getting enough food as the other birds might be too aggressive for this little guy or maybe it couldn’t reach the feeder as it was pretty small yet.
Cuddled up with the chicks
There wasn’t much heat in it, so I decided to put it in the pen with the smaller chicks for the night so I did. They were all cuddled up in their box.
The next morning I put it by the food and water and it started eating. I’ve been feeding it night crawlers when I can. It’s been with the chicks a couple days now and seems to be doing better
That was my day.
