Wednesday April 6, 2016 Jenner CA.
The day was looking good
When I got it going this morning, I was so tired out, I almost stayed home. Seems the new antihistamines the doc gave me yesterday really make me sleepy as the doc said they would. Only trouble, they’re still making me sleepy after it’s time to get up, so maybe I won’t do any more of those.
I drove on down to Jenner and put my boat in to a real nice day with low wind and the sun was out. I paddled across to Penny Island and sat here for a while.
What happened to all those cormorants
I noted this cormorant fishing out there in front of me. So, what happened to all those cormorants that came to dine on the dumb hatchery fish that were released this winter?
The cormorants came and were dining good, but then it rained some more and the river came up and it appears all the little fish washed out to sea. Whether that is good or bad for the fish I have no idea, but at least the cormorants didn’t’ get too many of them, but something else likely did? As far as I can tell most of the cormorants have left and are nesting somewhere else.
Resting along the way
Headed to the mouth
Looking out to sea
Seals are molting
Headed in for the day
Green water shoe caper
As I approached the boat ramp, two guys were just pulling in with their kayaks, so I pulled up and waited for them to clear the ramp. I watched them load their boats, then walk back down the ramp and put a green pair of water shoes on that were sitting on the rocks by the ramp and they got in their truck and left.
Later that night I got an email from Patti asking if I saw a pair of green water shoes on the ramp as someone left them there and was wondering what happened to them?
I learned the hard way too
I learned early on the hard way that one should only put things in the boat or in the car, but never on the ground or on the car, or things will get forgotten and lost,….. gone. I lost a good paddle that way.
At home I had good intensions, but I was just too tired out, so I moped around the house and the yard, but just couldn’t get it going, nor could I get to sleep. I was just tired out. No more of those pills. :O) I want some sleep, but I don’t want to be feeling all tired out all day.
That was my day.
