Kayaking at Jenner
The frost was still on the ground as I got it going this morning so off I went to Jenner where they don’t have much frost.
Hunting sea lions
I saw one chug a big fish. They can swallow them whole. They put their head up in the air with the fish in their mouth and sort of chug it down if they can. The sea lions move fast and it’s very hard to get photos of their action.
John says lots of big fish action
I sat around for a bit watching things then crossed over to John’s house where I saw John and talked with him for a bit. He said there was lots of steelhead action yesterday and today so they are still coming into the river to spawn.
Monte Rio fishing
On the way home I stopped at Monte Rio’s boat ramp to see if I could catch any fishermen there to see how things were going as I knew they must be catching some fish.
I went down to the ramp and chatted with them for a bit. Marty and Leon from Windsor were headed out to fish. He said he was down here yesterday and did well.
I said good luck fishing and headed on home for the day stopping to do a bit of shopping at Safeway in Guerneville.
Puttering around in the yard
Once home I made a cup of coffee then went outside to see what I could accomplish.
I puttered around the chicken pens improving a few things then decided this apple tree will need to go so I can expand the chicken pen a bit. I put the pen around the tree originally but now I can see it would be better gone. I will leave the stumps in there for now and maybe cut them out later if I need to. Otherwise they should be good for the chickens to play on.
Of course I made a bunch more brush to clean up but that’ll have to wait as I had more to cut up.
I was about worn out by this time and had to wait a bit for the chickens to come in to roost so I sat around in a chair watching them until they did.
That was my day for another good one.
