Paddling the Sixes river
Yesterday Steve and I talked it over and decided to go down to the Sixes River estuary to kayak for the day. We got a late start but early enough.
Spotted river otters
Walked on the sand
Paddling up the river
We paddled up about a mile until the river got too shallow where we turned back and headed back to load the boats up.
From there Steve went on home and I drove on down the the Port Orford harbor to have a look.
Port Orford Harbor
Clean boat bottoms
I went on back to my camp spot from there and that was it for that day for a nice one.
Today I went over to Steve’s place to have a look at his laptop that he said just crashed.
Steve goofs up
I had him write down the model and all numbers for the laptop but he miswrote one of them so I spent half a day trying to make things work that wouldn’t until I discovered his mistake. I started over but things still wouldn’t work. There appears to be something wrong with his hard drive and he didn’t have any discs for his window’s operating system so I had to go online to get stuff.
A ride to check out the Sixes
I set it all up to download which would take a long time and said to Steve let’s go check out the upper Sixes River to see if there is enough water to kayak down it so we drove off to check that out in his Jeep.
It looks like enough water in most places but I’m sure we’ll have to get out and walk our boats over quite a bit of shallow stuff but we can do it.
No luck yet with the computer
After checking that out we drove back to Steve’s house where I tried to get his computer to go again but I still had no luck so I put that aside for now so I can think about that.
On the way home I drove on down to see if anything was going on at the harbor and not much was happening.
I didn’t stay long and drove on back to my camp spot and that was my day for another nice one even though that darn computer isn’t working.
