I didn’t even think of the rain pants
It was overcast at Jenner when I arrived this morning and I didn’t even think of putting on my rain pants, but I should have.
I put my boat in the water and paddled across to Penny Island. I wasn’t sure which way to go today. The light wind was blowing down river which is unusual as it usually blows up the river most of the time. So, it looked like there was less wind down by the mouth so I started paddling along the edge of the island down river which looked like this.
About this time I thought I should of put my rain pants on, but too late now.
Showers while paddling across
Nice spot in the open river’s mouth
I sat in that spot and looked around to see what was going on.
I better be heading on in
I hung out there for about a half hour as more small showers hit me. They were real light, but enough of them start to add up and I was thinking I better start back before something bigger and longer lasting hits me, so I started heading back. I looked for a tree to pull under but there aren’t many trees overhanging the river in this area, but I still looked for places to get out of the showers every time one hit me. Lucky they were real light or I would have been drenched.
At least the winds were down
Lucky the winds stayed down below what was predicted.l They had predicted about 16 miles an hour winds, but they were less then five miles an hour.
Too late for a tree
Since I was almost at the ramp, I gave up on the trees and went on in for the day, cutting it short.
I pulled my boat out of the water and drove on home where it was raining and a bit on the cool side.
I went in the house and started the heat and that was my day.
