Sunday September 21, 2014 Jenner CA.
My friend Marty came by this morning with his computer. Mostly he needs windows 8.1 downloaded and installed, which he has been having trouble getting accomplished.
We started the download and left for Jenner to kayak for the day, hoping the download would be complete when we got back. It’s a rather large download, so takes a bit of time.
We arrived at Jenner to a nice day. Overcast a bit with a breeze. The water level of the estuary is up as the river’s mouth is still closed.
We put our boats in the water and paddled them across the river to the island. Marty said he didn’t bring a hat and sure could use one. I went back to the car and got a spare one and returned and we went on up to the little channel on the east end of the island and sat for a bit, shooting the bull, mostly.
We crossed through the channel and headed for the south shore of the river and started paddling up that way, at a slow pace.
We saw this great blue heron near the little channel we were headed for. Note the crook in it’s neck. I’m not sure, but I think it may have some kind of problem going on with that, as they are usually straight. It seems to be doing ok though and flew off as we entered the channel by the island.
We checked how the compute was doing when we got back and it hadn’t downloaded Windows 8.1 as we had hoped it would. Seems it was already in the middle of another windows update which it had to finish and it needed a restart.
Marty left his computer here and it’s still downloading, so maybe by morning it will have done it’s thing.
Another day gone.
