Friday December 8, 2017 Jenner CA.
The day of the smiley
The weather guys said the wind would be down at Jenner today around 2 miles an hour, just a breeze.
I passed by about a dozen grebe swimming around just taking it easy as none were diving. They tend to like to tuck their head down like this one. They seem to be getting use to me and didn’t seem to mind my presence much.
Mouths open and it ‘s high tide
Up at the overlook
Ocean water dives under the river water here
The high tide was really coming in and pushing me back a bit. The foam is from the ocean and indicates where the cold ocean water is diving under the warmer river water. I sat in this water for about a half hour watching things.
What’s that yellow thing up ahead
Turned out to be a helium filled smiley. I considered picking it up, but then was thinking I should leave it for one of the trash picker uppers around here as I thought it would give them a smile, so I left it not knowing someone I knew would come by in less than ten minutes and pick it up smiling. :O)
I continued down along the river’s edge headed for the boat ramp.
When I got to the boat ramp there were two kayaks there. It turned out to be one of the trash picker uppers, Mary who lives at Bridge Heaven. That’s at the big bridge you often see in my photos just above Jenner. She was there with Allen and had stopped to put some trash in the trash can there.
She said she just picked up the nicest thing she has ever picked up. She was all smiles as it turned out to be the smiley I had just seen, so it all worked out great. :O)
They paddled off towards the mouth and I hit the boat ramp and went on home for the day.
I was hungry when I got home and the sun had already gone over the western hills so it was cool outside. So I heated up a pot of my vegetable soup and then had a bit of a nap and that was my day for a good one.
