The weather guy was wrong
The weather guy said the wind was going to be around ten miles an hour today, but he was wrong.
Looking down towards the open mouth
We seemed to be having some kind of meeting
Eventually I left and headed over by the bottom end of Penny Island where I saw a couple turkey vultures doing something on the shore, so I paddled on over. I was only twenty feet or so from them. More landed like we were going to have a meeting or something.
Almost ran into this great blue heron
I left and paddled up along Penny Island on the front side where I ran into this heron. Lots of times when I get near a critter, I put the boat into glide and don’t move and just take pictures. I never am quite sure which way the boat might glide and sometimes it glides real close to critters. If I move they would spook so I just keep taking pictures.
The result is sometimes I get really close to critters. Now this particular great blue heron I’ve been going by almost daily so by now it knows it’s wasting it’s time to fly off as I don’t bother it. But still, this is pretty close, about six feet.
I left it fishing and continued on up the river.
Changed my mind and went ashore
I paddled on up to eagle’s landing. I wasn’t going to go to shore because the sun had already gone behind the mountain, but when I got to the spot it looked so nice I went to shore and spent some time here.
A little sun would be nice
But eventually I thought some warmth from the sun would be nice, so I headed back down the river were the sun was still shining, but just barely as it was gong to go down for the day.
I put the boat on the car and drove on home and that was it for me today.
