Tuesday February 2, 2016 Jenner CA.
Let’s start with the peach tree
And let’s get the dentist done
I was at the Dentist’s office in Forestville just before one. I was pretty sure it was going to be a root cannel and it was, so tomorrow I get that done around noon.
Now we can play
Not to waste the day, I headed for Jenner right after I got out of the dentist office and crossed over the street to get some antibiotics from the pharmacy.
I arrived just after two PM to what looked like a fairly nice day. A bit overcast, but the wind was down.
I crossed over to Penny Island and decided to head up river as I’d come back down to the mouth area near sunset.
More river otters
Sea lion got a bit close
I waited about a half hour, but they didn’t come out, so I crossed over the river near Paddy’s rock and was sitting watching things when this sea lion stirs up the water in front of me, hunting big fish I think. I’m not sure what that red patch is on it’s side, maybe a cut. I can’t make it out?
The sea lion didn’t seem to be successful and moved off and kept hunting out in the middle of the river as I watched.
Eventually, I started back down the river as the sun went behind the hill to my southwest.
As the sun sank in the west, I headed down river, which is west, to try and get some of that last setting sun.
Open river’s mouth
The mouth was wide open and going to high tide. I sat in front of it and watched things.
Eagle shows up
As I was watching, a bald headed eagle landed close by and then a couple turkey vultures landed too.
I headed back towards the boat ramp and put my boat on the car and went on home for the day and that was my day.
