Great day for a paddle
I arrived in Jenner around noon and put the boat in the water and parked the car.
Blackberries at Swamp Rock Trailhead
Just resting and enjoying the day
Big stump or skull
My stump is bigger than your stump. The main trunk is about eight feet in diameter and the roots that are left are about fifteen feet across. Maybe it’s really the skull of some big animal of long ago. :O)
Headed to the river’s mouth area
Ladies talking lumens
I had talked with the ladies up ahead at the boat ramp and they said they’d been out for the bio-lumens several times which indicated to me they were serious about it.
So I pulled up and told them I’d give them some more info about what I knew about the lumens. They sat down and listened while I explained how the high tide comes in and flows under the warmer river water which makes the estuary water layered and not mixed up as in brackish which most people don’t know. This makes a difference how the lumens work in the water.
I left them sitting on the sandy beach and paddled out into the foam in the open mouth. The foam is from the ocean waters diving under the warmer river water when the tide comes in. The foam can’t sink with the colder denser ocean water so it flouts and builds up.
Looking for more ripe berries on Penny Island
Being at the ocean can really wear one out and it did. I just seemed to be tired out so I napped a lot and went out to check on the new peeps.
I was so beat I didn’t get around to putting a blog together but went to bed early and that was my day for a nice one.
