Wednesday October 8, 2014 Monte Rio CA.
My friend Marty came by about eleven this morning. We loaded another kayak on the car and headed down to Monte Rio to kayak for the day.
We pulled on in to the Villa Grande hole, off to the right and sat and had lunch and sat some more. This is as far as we went today, before heading on back. Do you see the cormorants in the dead tree?
We sat around at Villa Grande hole enjoying the day and shooting the bull. Not many people on the river today, which is always nice.
We finally got tired of sitting in that spot and started back up the river, just as leisurely as we came down.
Just below Monte Rio we spotted this great blue heron in the weeds getting some sun. I was pretty sure we could get fairly close to it for pictures because Monte Rio has some friendly birds as no one bothers them much in this area. Sure enough, we got real close to it, about twenty feet.
The boat ramp was just above that, so we pulled our boats out of the water and went on home for a nice day.
I got home and all I could do was take a good nap for the rest of the day. :O)
