Rain stops so it’s a paddle day
I heard it raining hard this morning before I got up and got it going, but when I got up, it had stopped and wasn’t bad out.
I headed on down to Jenner to do a paddle for the day. It was overcast, and no sun, but the wind was down so it looked good to go for the day.
Headed to Willow Creek
Great beast from the past
Sea lions hunting
As I was paddling along some big creature passed by close under the water which turned out to be these two sea lions which are in the estuary to eat big fish coming into the river to head up to spawn in the creeks.
Entering Willow Creek
While I was back there in the creek the wind seemed to pick up a bit which is does in this creek which isn’t expected as it seems protected, but somehow it creates a wind here, so I headed back out to the river and crossed over to the other side, the north side and started paddling back down the river when I went past this splashy thing in the water. All I could see was water drops at first.
Paddled down along the island
I’d been out long enough today, so I decided not to paddle down to the open mouth, but just take some pics and head on in for the day which I did.
I loaded the boat on the car and drove on home.
Building a motorcycle template
I wanted to get the materials together to make a motorcycle template and I needed something to make the wheels out of, but wasn’t finding anything as it seems I threw out the cardboard I keep around for such purposes, so I had to hunt for something and finally settled on a big box I should be able to cut the wheels out of.
I found a board to hook the wheels together to form the motorcycle, but not today as it was getting dark. I need the motorcycle template to complete the design of my van’s motorcycle carrier. With the template I can see where things will hit or not hit when the carrier is in the up position.
I’ll show you once I build the motorcycle what I mean.
That was it for me today for another good one.
