Looking nice out
As you can see it was real nice as I put in the water at Jenner this morning and headed down towards the river’s open mouth area.
I could see lots of birds as I approached the lower end of Penny Island.
White and brown pelicans preening on the gravel.
And an egret with some mallards.
I went by these mallards feeding in the weeds.
River’s mouth is open
I paddled down towards the mouth area and went on by to the end of the river just to the right.
I was watching this egret preening.
After that, it did some fishing too.
There were a couple harbor seals frolicking in the water close by.
Eventually, I left the area, going by these harbor seals resting on some submerged sand in front of the open mouth.
I crossed back over the river towards Penny Island.
I continued on up the side of Penny Island on the right.
On the way, I passed by these brown pelicans.
And I went back by the white pelicans who were now mostly napping.
I decided to call it a day and went on over to the boat ramp and pulled my boat out and went on home.
Work on the van project
After a short rest, I went out and worked on the van. I installed the rest of the clutch linkage and adjusted it, so that’s done. I tried the larger fan belts I bought for the ones that were just a little too tight to install and found them way oversize, so I’ll try again on that one.
I worked on how to install an air filter as I wanted to use the old one I had on the old engine, but I was having a hard time making it fit now. I haven’t decided to use what I have or buy a new one. I got the old one in there all right, but there’s not really a lot of room for the type of filter it is, so I’ll have to decide on what to do on that one.
I need the right spark plug wires and I need to hook up all the electrical stuff now and I’m almost there.
That was my day.
