Frost on the ground
There was frost on the ground this morning around my house as I left to kayak at Jenner today.
I got a couple miles down the road when I realized I had forgotten my camera, so I had to return home and get it.
It was a bit warmer at Jenner when I arrived, as with all the water, it doesn’t freeze much and the climate is more moderate most of the time.
The weather guy said it was going to be a bit windy today, but when I arrived, the wind was down and the sun was out nicely. It looked a bit windier down near the river’s mouth, so I decided to paddle on up the river to Muskrat Nest Beach.
I could hear the geese honking across the river form me. They honked when alarmed and there was also some honking going on between the geese from what I will call mating rivalry. It seems to be that time of year. I witnessed one good fight but was too slow with the camera.
From Muskrat I paddled across the river to see what birds I might find on the that side by Paddy’s rock.
The wind was starting to come up as I paddled back across the river to Eagle’s landing where I was thinking of going for a hike up the hill. I landed and got out of my boat with good intentions for a hike. I decided to sit down on the shore for a bit and the hike never happened. :O)
I was dallying near the start of the island back channel when I noticed two ladies paddling my way in their kayaks. We started talking and we shoot the bull for a bit and we both continued on our ways.
Winds picked up a bit
The wind had picked up a bit, maybe to fifteen or twenty miles an hour as I headed for the river’s open mouth area.
Open river’s mouth
I could see some surfers playing out in the waves as I looked out the open river’s mouth. It looks like this surfer is about to get creamed by the big wave, but it crashed right in front of him and splashed around him. He just had to lift his board up in the air to keep the water from taking it from him. He’s standing in the shallows on some sand.
I was a still a bit worn out today from my trip to the big city yesterday, so headed on in early, around two PM.
I loaded my boat on the top of the car and headed on home with intentions of doing nothing for the rest of the day, except hitting the couch for a nap and that’s what I did.
That was my day.
