Wednesday June 1, 2016 Jenner CA.
It was a bit overcast as I drove into Jenner today, but the wind was down and looking good.
I put the boat in and paddled across to Penny Island and headed down towards the river’s mouth area.
Lots of feeding geese
Headed to the mouth area
Open mouth area
I pulled over in front of the river’s open mouth and sat for a bit. I couldn’t get too close as there were a bunch of harbor seals resting in the mouth.
There wasn’t much happening around the mouth area which is unusual.
Headed up the river
I went by these geese feeding too as I headed for the upper end of the island where I planned to go ashore to look for some berries to eat. You can see the old milk barn on the island in the background.
Penny Island for a walk to look for berries
I walked on the trail looking for berries to eat along the way, finding some here and there.
From there I took my time slowly headed for the boat ramp, just enjoying the day on the water.
Went on home
I took my boat out and went on home for the day where I had some projects to do.
Working on the old tractor
The old one was getting plugged up because it didn’t have that screen on the top of it like this new one does.
After that I removed the fan belt so I can get a new one that fits better. This one is too long and a sloppy fit and is mostly warn out too.
And then I decided I might as well clean out the old carb and see if I can adjust the float level down a little as gas has been leaking out of the carb when it sits.
I haven’t tested it out yet as I haven’t put any gas in the tank yet as I’m waiting for some gasket sealer to set on the carb.
John’s cycle needs more work
In the meantime I got an email from John saying when he tried to ride his Honda trail 90 to work this morning, it would only run a short distance and stop, which means I got his float level sit too low yesterday, so he’ll be bringing that back I’m pretty sure so we can try again. The trouble with working on all this stuff is we don’t have any service manuals so I have to guess at the settings for things. Trial and error.
I spent what little was left of the day just sitting around the yard taking it easy.
