Friday August 28, 2015 Jenner CA.
I had a hard time getting it going this morning, but I finally did and headed on down to Jenner and put my boat in the water to what looked to be a nice day and it was.
Headed towards the river’s mouth
I paddled across to Penny Island and decided to go on down towards the mouth as it was almost high tide.
No harbor seals on the beach
This is what it looked like as I paddled towards the open river’s mouth. Interesting to note is there are no harbor seals on the beach right now for some reason. Most of them must be out feeding in the ocean.
End of the river
l paddled pass the open mouth to the end of the river where I sat and watched for a bit. This seagull was on a rock in back of me. I wasn’t sure if it only had one leg or it just had that other leg up. Quite often I see seagulls with only one leg. It’s a rough life out there.

Back up the river
Eventually, I tired of that area and headed on up the river through the islands back channel taking my time of course.
I didn’t go far, only up to the Eagle’s landing area, then turned back down the river after a short rest under the big trees there.
I’ve passed by this loon quite often and have taken it’s picture often too. Today, it didn’t move off as it usually does when I approached it. Instead , it stayed about twenty feet from me and just did it’s thing.
From there, I crossed the river again to Penny Island where this egret flew in close to me an started some serious fishing.
I left the egret fishing and crossed over to the boat ramp where I took my boat out and went on home for the day.
I’m still pretty tired out and off my oats from my recent trip, so I mostly napped and puttered a bit in the yard for the rest of the day and that was about it for the day.
