Warmer at Jenner
It was chilly out as I got it going this morning. I knew it would be warmer at Jenner. All that water tends to keep things warmer, so off I went.
The sun was out and the wind was down as I put my boat in the water. The water was still real muddy from the recent rains, but there wasn’t much current as it was going to high tide so the water was getting backed up a bit.
Headed up the river
I decided to go up the river on the north shoreline which I don’t often do.
Sat by the bridge
I headed down the south shoreline. Some of it had the sun being blocked by the hill, so I moved down a ways to this spot I call Muskrat where the sun is always shining. I sat here taking in the warm sunshine before moving on down the way.
Fat harbor seals
I run into Ken in his boat
At the top end of the island I ran into Ken who has a house down this way and was picking up some trash. I followed him back to his place shooting the bull on the way.
Russian River’s mouth is open open open
I continued on down headed towards the river’s mouth area. I saw John, who lives down by the mouth, so went over to talk with him a bit. He’s having some pretty serious heart problems so I listened to his latest news on the subject before continuing on.
Safer in the river
Even though it was high tide and the current is less, I don’t get too close as I value my life. The river is much safer than the ocean.
I didn’t stay too long as it was late in the day. I paddled back to the bottom end of Penny Island where a bunch of harbor seals are usually hanging out and spent some time with them.
Not really in a hurry to leave
I finally hit the boat ramp and got my car and loaded my boat and drove on home for the day.
And that was my day.
