Two days of blogs
I wore myself out kayaking yesterday so didn’t get around to doing a blog.
But here it is.
I put my boat in the water at the Jenner boat ramp and paddled across the river and headed on up river. There was some light high fog but otherwise a real nice day with low wind which is always good.
Mostly to myself
I didn’t get down here until about 1 PM so most of the other boaters had already come and gone which is also good.
I pulled into this spot to sit and watch. One of my old stop spots that I hadn’t been at for a long time. I call it Otter’s log as sometimes I see a bunch of them on it but not today.
This was my view looking out from Otter’s Log looking up river.
I slowly made my way up river along here which I call Eagle’s Landing. Of course that’s because eagles sometimes land here, but not today.
The light wind was really dying as I paddled along here.
I made it up to this spot I call Muskrat and sat in my boat for a good spell just watching and enjoying the day. No muskrats here today but the river was sure nice.
This was looking down river from that spot.
I saw these ducks swim across the river while I was watching.
Eventually I paddled across the river and headed back down river going by these bovines feeding along the river’s edge.
I could see those birds behind the big rock so I sneaked around the rock to get closer.
These two pelicans were doing some preening and taking it easy.
There was a couple ducks and some cormorants with them.
I paddled back around the big rock and headed down river past the birds.
As I was paddling back I was thinking some wild blackberries might be good so I pulled into shore at a place called Swamp Rock.
I was surprised to find so many ripe berries.
I made half of them disappear and saved the other half to eat on my way back from my little walk around the area.
After eating plenty of berries I went back to where my boat was and found this spot to lay down on the grass for a good break for a half hour or so.
It was time to head on in for the day so I pushed off and headed on towards the Jenner boat ramp up ahead a ways.
I paddled on by three great blue herons and here’s one of them that was focused the best.
And there’s the Jenner boat ramp where I was headed to take my boat out of the water.
I put the boat on my car and drove on home for the day. I was worn out from the nice day on the water so didn’t get around to producing this blog.
Today’s blog Saturday
Today I got it going and didn’t have much planned.
I was chair hopping when I decided to move some woodchip mulch to my garden and some to the chicken’s mulch pen.
I loaded up the wheelbarrow here at the woodchip pile. The chickens didn’t help me much.
I dumped a couple loads in the garden and spread it out and then put several loads of woodchips in this mulch pen. After that I turned the water on the woodchips to water them down as the chickens like that.
I continued my chair hopping and also did some supervising of the chickens watching the new peeps.
I have a number of sizes of them now. These are my medium ones.
And plenty of new little ones.
I puttered around the yard just enjoying the day mostly as the chickens didn’t need much supervising.
Looks like a great paddle on the river.
