My brother Barry’s wife wanted to try out his new Hobbie kayak he just got to see if she wanted one too. These kayaks also have pedals as well as paddles so for some people the pedals make it easier to get around than the paddles do. And the pedals are nice if one is fishing off their kayak which Barry plans to do.
Closed river mouth
The mouth was closed and the water was up real high so most of the island was flooded so we paddled onto it first.
Then we paddled down to the closed river’s mouth here where you can see the sand dam the ocean pushes up to close the mouth. The water level is at the top and should open soon. And the ocean is real rough and at low tide.
There were lots of logs and debrie flouting around in the water which happens when the mouth closes and the water level raises up. The water level down here gets higher with the mouth closed then it does from the winter high waters of the river.
Figuring it out
Barry’s wife MJ liked the kayak very mush so I think she is going to get one of them.
We loaded up and headed for my house where I gave Barry the snare cages I poured lead into so he can put the snare loops he’s been working on, on them.
Chicken pen work
Then I noticed the bottom of this gate’s wire was rusted out and loose so I looked for some heavier gauge wire but didn’t have any so I had to use more chicken wire to repair it. It will also rust out in a short time so I need to get some heavier wire the next time I go to the stores so I have some on hand for such repairs.
I sat out in the yard for awhile until the evening chill started to come in and I went into the house.
