Calling back east
Once I got it going this morning, I called the TBI kit maker as the person I wanted to talk with was supposed to be back from a vacation. They are located back east and there is a three hour difference. I called and the lady said Troy, the guy I wanted to talk with was not accepting phone calls for the next hour and a half. Seems he is trying to catch up on some orders. So, that didn’t work out again.
Off to kayak Jenner
I headed on down to Jenner to kayak for the day. The wind was up a little when I got there, but not too bad, so I put my boat in the water and crossed over the river to Penny Island where I decided to go down and check out the river’s mouth area as I hadn’t been down that way in a while.
Headed back up the river
I continued on up along the river’s south shoreline going by this cormorant also getting some sun. Actually it’s drying it’s wings, just in case it has to take off as it sees me approaching. But it does not fly away.
Napping harbor seal
Muddy water is good for the fish
The river is muddied up right now from the recent rains. With the river muddied up, all the fish coming into the river to spawn, or headed out into the ocean, are mostly safe as when the river is muddy, nothing catches fish, not the birds, not the harbor seals or the sea lions, or the fishermen. It’s the only time the fish are free to move around safely and do their thing. Muddy also means there is lots of water for the fish to move up the river. So next time you are looking at muddy water and thinking of pollution, realize that this is actually a good time for the fish, despite what most people think.
I put the boat on the car and went on home for the day. Since I got a late start this morning, trying to make the phone call back east, it was five PM already.
I needed a nap and that was it for the day for another nice one.
