Tuesday January 13, 2015 Jenner CA.
I got up this morning and first thing tried to make a doctors appointment again with no luck. I think my contact guy is on vacation or sick or something.
Next, I called Country Tire to see if they got the tires in for my car and they had so I made an appointment for Thursday morning to have them installed on my car.
Ok, enough of that stuff messing around on the phone. I headed on down to Jenner to kayak for the day.
Ray’s truck was in the parking lot and I could see him up the river a bit. I put my boat in the water and headed on up that way too where I caught up with him just above Penny Island.
We continued on up the river with no real purpose in mind other than enjoying the day.
We paddled up to Muskrat and dallied there for a spell. Ray was feeling like taking it easy today, so we decided to not go for a walk today and decided to head on down to the river’s mouth area to check it out as we hadn’t been down that way for awhile.
We spotted some white looking things up on the hill in the grass and were trying to figure out what they were. As we got closer, they appeared to be some kind of animals. We couldn’t make out what kind, maybe horses with white blankets on them? We didn’t really think they were cattle as the ones that had been in the area were black and these things had a bunch of white on them.
After looking at the pictures on my computer, I determined they were indeed cattle. I had to look them up. They turned out to be Belted Galloway’s. A hardy animal that does well on grasses and apparently an expensive meat.
We left there and headed on in for the day and took our boats out of the water and headed on home.
On the way home, I decided to go by the Country Tire guys to get my new tires installed, thinking they might not be too busy at this time of day and then I wouldn’t have to do it in the morning, on Thursday. I got lucky as they weren’t too busy and installed my new tires and I headed on home.
I tried once more to get a doctors appointment, through the front desk this time. I ended up at the same guys phone and he wasn’t there, so I left another message. His message on the answering machine went something like this. I’ll get back to you within 24 to 48 hours. I think a better way for him to have said that is I’m out sick or on vacation for a day, or something more understandable than what he said.
I gave up and hit the couch for the rest of the day.
