Monte Rio paddle
Today seemed like a good day to do a paddle. I could see the wind was up a bit at Jenner so headed down to Monte Rio where I knew the wind would be less.
The salmon have been coming up the river since about the first of August so I thought I’d have a look and see if I could spot any especially down by the Moscow Pool where I was headed, down river.
Auto parts store
I stopped at the auto parts store in Monte Rio on the way down to see about finding some fittings to get my new master cylinder for my Toyota to work. They didn’t have what I needed so I’m going to have to work on that one.
Boat’s on the water
A bit of wind but not bad
Didn’t see any salmon
Rein’s beach is on the lower side of Moscow pool in the sand here. I paddled by it and turned back up river to paddle around the edge of Moscow Pool which is to the left and back up. There’s an egret there on the right.
I saw this cormorant up in the trees and went around it as when they get nervous and are thinking of flying off, they poop and you don’t want to be under them when that happens. And yes it did poop, but not on me.
Harbor seals mean big fish
While I was here I saw a harbor seal swim by which usually means there are some big fish in the water and they are looking for them.
I loaded up and drove on home.
After a break at home I fed and watered the chickens and made some plans for some shopping tomorrow.
That was my day for a nice one.
