Tuesday January 20, 2015 Jenner CA.
I again waited around for a phone call about my next doctors appointment before heading out to Jenner to kayak for the day. No appointment yet.
It was foggy around my house this morning and all the way driving down to Jenner this morning. But Jenner was not in the fog. The sun was out and the wind was down as I put my boat in the water.
King tide day
I paddled across the river to Penny Island to decide which way to go today. Today was a King tide day which means it was one of our higher tides, 6.7 feet and the minus tide was –1.4 feet which is a good spread for this area. It was just coming off the high tide so I decided to go down to the river’s mouth again today and check it out.
I cleared the end of the island where there were a bunch of harbor seals taking it easy in the water.
River’s mouth is open
I pulled into this spot just inside the mouth and watched for a bit. The sea lions were working the area, but they were too fast to get any good photos of them. The wood logs are floating around because the higher tide was high enough to float them off the shoreline.
Not too much going on that looked exciting today. I watched for about an hour, then headed back up the river. I took the back channel up along Penny Island, taking my time.
I decided not to go through the channel and started around the end of the island when I heard a big swish and looked up to see one of the bald headed eagles take off from one of the trees just behind the deer.
I was thinking of going up the river for a ways, but decided to quit early again today and go home and sit by the phone instead, so I headed on in for the day.
I sat by the phone and had a nap too, but the phone didn’t ring. It sure seems like there must be a better way to do these appointments than the way they are done. This way is pushing up my stress level, just waiting. Playing tag with phones is one of the reasons I dislike the things. But I have to do what I have to do, so I’m doing it. :O)
