Monday April 12, 2021 Jenner CA.
It looked like the wind was down in the Russian River Estuary so once I got it going today I was off to paddle around the river for a bit.
I put in at the boat ramp at Jenner and paddled across the river to this spot which I usually do to decide which way to go for the day, up river or down river to the ocean. Down river today, so off I went down along the islands edge.
Two gulls stole what the vulture had and took it out to this rock to eat so I paddled on over to see what they had to eat. They had a small fish they were consuming. They weren’t going to give it up as I approached right up to them.
Eventually I started back up the river going by the river’s open mouth area. I could see the ocean was fairly rough today. Waves were breaking over the old jetty. That’s why I stay in the river, it’s much safer.
Eventually I got my boat back in the water and headed around the upper end of the island. Fog was moving in where I had just been in those big trees on the left. The fog was waffling going in and out and cleared back out as I headed for the boat ramp at Jenner.
The boat got loaded on my car and I headed on home for a much needed nap.
