A nice day to kayak the river
Started out getting our feet wet
We tried to paddle through the shallows just below the bridge, but couldn’t make it up through the current so we had to get out and walk our boats through the water about a 100 yards up the river before we could get back in and paddle up the river.
Up the river a ways we spotted these little ducks. That one whitish one is out of place. Ray thought maybe an albino, but about a quarter mile up the river we saw another one just like this, just one in the group. I think another duck laid an egg in the others nest or maybe it mated with a white male duck. Not sure, but it was something to talk about.
One of the nicest places on the river
Good current for drifting
Making plans and some work
At home I made plans for how much wood I’d need to make some chicken roosts and I set up the water on top of this enclosure and tried it out. Eventually I’ll have a sprinkler on top of each enclosure, just one more to go.
I have some strawberry plants in my blueberry enclosure, but the potatoes growing in there are shading them out so I moved most of the strawberry plants to this garden enclosure. I’ll be able to look after the plants better in this spot and see when they have berries and eat them.
I spent some time burying more of the fence wire that is used to keep critters from digging under the fence until it got dark and that was it for me today for a nice one.
