Friday November 7, 2014 Jenner CA.
The weatherman predicted another nice day so I headed down to Jenner to kayak for the day.
I could see Ray and his brother John were here today as their trucks were in the parking lot. As I put my boat in the water, I could see them paddling down towards the closed river mouth area, into the fog that was just starting to come in.
I paddled over to Penny Island and along it’s shoreline.
Lots of seagulls
Eventually we got tired of that and left the area and headed over to the flooded Penny Island.
A little ways past the pelican, the fog was gone and it started to left off all of the river.
Flooded Penny Island
We paddled through some grasses to get into the part of Penny Island that is flooded because of the closed river’s mouth.
I could see there was at least one otter moving in the grass, but the grass was hiding it so I couldn’t get any pictures. But there was some big redwood logs laying in the water, so I focused on the first one it would swim by hoping it would hop up on the log.
As we were watching that otter, we caught some more movement at the left end of the stump on the ground. It was hard to see, but we finally determined that there was one more otter.
We left the otters to do their thing. John went on in for the day and Ray and I continued paddling up the back channel of Penny Island.
Lots of birds
Ray and I took our time paddling up the back channel and went in for the day from there.
The fog and the sun made for another nice day kayaking around the Russian River Estuary.
