Thursday January 28, 2021 Jenner CA.
It wasn’t raining today when I got it going and there was even some sun out, but I hear there’s more rain storms coming soon so I thought I better get out for a yak while I could.
I drove on down to the Jenner Overlook that looks out over the river and ocean.
River’s mouth open
River’s mouth just opened up this morning.
Boat ramp put in
From the overlook I drove on over to the boat ramp at the visitor’s center and put my boat in the water. I decided to paddle around Penny Island and go down the back channel towards the ocean here where I stopped for a bit on the island’s upper end before starting down the island’s back channel.
Panda bear stuff
Sea lion means big fish
I hung around the mouth area for some time. I saw and heard a sea lion inside the open mouth area. Sea lions in this area mean they are usually hunting the big spawning fish coming into the river to spawn.
Sun and low wind
That was a nice day for a paddle and even had some sun out with lots of big clouds. The wind was also down which makes for a much nicer paddle.
I made it to the boat ramp and put the boat on the car and drove on home up along the river to Guerneville about 15 miles to my house.
Once home I checked on the chickens and went in the house for a good nap.
Nice day on the river.
