Wednesday and Thursday March 29, 30 2017 Monte Rio and Guerneville CA.
Two days in one
Yesterday the weather guys said it was going to be a bit windy down at Jenner, but I needed a yak, so I drove on down to see if it was as windy as they said it was going to be.
Windy for sure
Jenner overlook at the mouth
So I drove down to the overlook at the river’s mouth to have a look because that’s what locals do. The ocean was fairly rough with waves breaking over the sandy beaches as I looked down at the river’s open mouth.
And I could see these cormorants taking it easy down in front of me on this rock in the river. Not many here today. They don’t like the muddy river as they can’t catch fish in it.
So Monte Rio it is
I left and headed for Monte Rio as there is usually far less wind there as it’s not at the ocean.
I shoveled a little mud off the boat ramp, but it wasn’t too bad and put my boat in the water.
Bill and I shot the bull
Bill talked my ear off and eventually I just said see you later, I’m headed down river and off I went putting my boat into the current and letting er drift.
I passed by this pair of merganser ducks getting some sun.

Enjoying the day
I sat around there for about an hour enjoying the day and watching for stuff and they headed back up the river. The current is pretty strong yet, so I worked my way up the edges where paddling is much easier. Here I’m paddling up along the edge just below Monte Rio.
What’s with the robin
Too tired to blog
I made it back to the boat ramp and went on home for the day. I was tired out, so I had a nap and I couldn’t get it going again. I just seemed to be tired out, so I went to bed and that was my day, didn’t get the blog written.
The weather guys said it was going to be windy down at Jenner again today, so I decided to stay home and work on my garden enclosure again.
Seems like I always need to shop
First thing I did was go to Guerneville and do some shopping at Safeway to get some things to eat, corn free I hope.
Back to work on the garden enclosure
That done, I eventually started work on the garden enclosure.
Enclosure sides lift open up
I got the wire in all the panels and installed the panels. I made the sides of the enclosure able to lift up so I can access stuff inside the enclosure to work on stuff and to harvest stuff.
When I’m done I will fill the dirt in to as high as the one foot sides on my enclosure so it will be handy to open a side and get to stuff.
Plum tuckered out
I worked until I was plum tired out and just sat around in the yard for the rest of the day.
And that was my day for a productive one. I’m about 95 percent done with the garden enclosure. I need a few more supplies to finish it up.
