A foggy day
I could see Jenner was pretty fogged in as I approached in my car today. It was a fog that looked interesting, if you know what I mean, mystical.
I put my boat in and parked my car. As I was headed to my boat, I saw a guy that is a volunteer at the visitor center which I know a bit so I stopped and talked with him to find out about the town meeting the other day where they discussed what was going to happen with the visitor center as far as repairs and construction. He had some good info on that which I will relay near the end of this post.
Crossing in the fog
Sun comes out
I didn’t stay too long today as I want to get back early and do a shopping run at the shopping center, mostly Costco for supplies for my upcoming trip.
The visitor center information
As I approached the visitor center I took this photo to show what’s going to happen to it for now from what I got from the guy earlier. The state parks people were thinking of putting a new metal roof on it and raising the front deck to the level of the side deck and repairing a bunch of loose boards which came apart when the river level rose a bit last winter.
They would also like to rise the whole thing up in the future. But………………there’s no money to rise it up or do the repairs that way, so it was decided at the town meeting to repair the shake roof and repair the deck boards as they are for now. If they ever raise the place up, the whole place might need to be replaced, so it’ wiser not to try to find the money to do anything but repair it for now. Sounds good to me.
Fogs moved out over the ocean
I pulled my boat out of the water and went on home for a bit.
Did my shopping
Then I headed to Santa Rosa to Costco to shop and returned home again.
Needed to pick the ripe blueberries
Since I’ll be off on a trip soon, I needed to do something with the blueberries that are ripe, so I took the cover off and picked about a gallon of them.
Prepped the van some more
After that, I greased my van and checked the oils in the transmission and transfer case. They are both low about a half inch, which is ok, but I may top them up? I also checked the air pressure in the tires and all is good with them. And the engine oil and water were checked and everything on the engine looks good to go hoses and belts.
I put most of the food I bought today where it belonged in cupboards in the van. I will do a little more shopping at the local market tomorrow and I’ll be ready to go.
That was my day.
