Paddling up from Monte Rio
With the river’s mouth closed the riffle below the Monte Rio bridge is flat like a lake so it’s an easy time to paddle up it to the bridge.
River otters sneak by
Bohemian Grove Hole
Here I am sitting in the Bohemian Grove hole where I stopped and had a good break before heading back down the river. There used to be a big high wooden train crossing here in the olden days. It came off the place on the rocks with the wooden fence on it to the left.
Heading back down the river
Some smoke moved back in today
I put the boat on the car and drove on home for the day. Nice paddle.
More fire prevention in the yard
I rested up when I got home then went out in the yard and did some more brush removal for fire protection by the creek in the back of the house. I got it knocked down and now just have to clean it up a bit.
UPS Man shows up
Around five I heard the UPS guy pull up outside my main gate so I went out to get my new gas tank for my 1968 Toyota that I’ll be working on.
Working on the bridge bulkhead
My brother Tom brought some 8 foot steel fence posts by to use to fix the bridge bulkhead. I needed to drill two holes in each one by the end so I can put some lag bolts through the holes to hold the whole thing together onto what’s left of the old bulkhead which is wood.
I got the holes drilled but I could not find any lag bolts on hand so I’ll have to go buy some before I can do any more on that project.
That was my day for a good one.
