Wednesday November 11, 2020 Jenner CA.
My brother Barry wanted to take his wife out to try out a kayak so we headed on down to Jenner around noon to let her have at it.
There was a bit of a chill in the air but the wind was down so it was a nice day for paddling.
Headed to the closed mouth
We got our boats in the water without too much trouble and paddled across to Penny Island and then headed on down towards the river’s mouth area. Since the water level was up I knew the river’s mouth had closed up again which makes this a big lake.
Nope, no harbor seals
We checked out the birds for a bit and I looked for the harbor seals but didn’t see any. I thought they might be on the other side of the birds so we headed on down through them to Hay Stack rock at the end of the river to see if there were any seals down that way.
We decided to go to shore to have a look at the ocean and see if there were any harbor seals on that side.
There weren’t too many brown pelicans here today but some were coming in off the ocean, likely after chowing down out there on small fish. The pelicans were coming back from the ocean around noon before but with the time change I think we were just a bit early as there seemed to be more coming in as we left the area and headed back.
My brother’s wife, Mary Jane said she’d had enough and headed back to the boat ramp with us following, something about sore muscles here and there. :O)
We got our boats back on the rigs and went on home for the day.
I was trying to think what I did after that. Seems I ate some food and did a a bit of chair hopping and the day was over.
