Ray and I kayak Jenner
I met Ray at the Jenner boat ramp this morning to go for a yak. We put our boats in the water and headed down towards the open river’s mouth area. It was high tide and the river was muddy from the recent rains. It looked to be a nice day and it was.
Lots of stuff comes down the river when the water comes up. Here’s someone’s dock that got away and floated down the river. It seems to have a rope snagged on the river’s bottom here that’s why it’s still here and not out in the ocean someplace.
Swells make me seasick
We are headed down to the river’s mouth where the river goes into the ocean.. See that swell just in front of me. Not good for a person who gets seasick easily like me, especially looking through the camera.
Anything coming down the river is open for salvage if one wants it, but we didn’t. I was starting to feel a bit better but once it hits it stays for quite some time but not as bad.
Rest at Penny Island
We paddled up the back channel of the island and saw this thing up ahead which turned out to be someone’s old zodiac. The river is also a dump for people’s junk that is old and worn out that they want to get rid of.
Eagle takes off
Down the river
From there we crossed over the river to the other side to see what we could see. The river’s current was enough we didn’t have to paddle much as we were now gong down the river.
Is that an eagle
Male mergansers are here
We continued down along the side of the river. This time of the year the male merganser ducks show up to mate. They are gone someplace else most other times of the year and only the females are here. One female and four male ducks.
We headed on in to the boat ramp and pulled our boats out and went on home for the day.
Using the new camera
This is the second day I used my new Panasonic video camera. I use it to take stills. I like some things about it and something’s I don’t. It seems to take pretty good pictures but is a lot slower than my other cameras. Its seems to have a better automatic focus then the other cameras. Cameras have a hard time focusing on black so the ducks above came out pretty good with the new camera. I guess I’ll keep it.
Wi-Fi extender arrives
When I got home I went to the mail box as my new Wi-Fi extender was supposed to arrive and it was in the box so I looked at that a bit and set it up which was fairly easy and I’m now trying it out on my chicken camera. The extender seems to be doing the job but I want to try it in some other modes to see what works out best.
That was my day for a good one.
