Looking for Ray and John
The weather looked good for kayaking today so I went on down to Jenner once I got it going, around noon.
I saw Ray’s and John’s trucks parked in the parking lot so I knew they were out there in their kayaks somewhere.
There they are
John has his new doggie with him
Getting on the trail
Lots of poison oak
We’re walking up the Poison Oak Alley Trail here. None of us catch the stuff, but John says he has to do his own wash to keep his wife out of it. The place is full of it and there is no way you can avoid it all.
Going up the slide
We walk up the trail to a spot where a mud slide occurred two years ago. I had climbed up it last year and made a little puddle in the water at the top and I wanted to see if it made it through this last winter so we started straight up the hill on that slide. Ray petered out about half way, but John and his dog made it to the top with me.
My puddle is gone
A big clump of dirt had falling on my water puddle and covered it up, so I’ll have to dig another puddle one day, but not today.
Continuing to Eagle’s Landing
We made it up to the Landing and sat and shot the bull for a bit then headed back down the trail.
Wind picks up a little
Nice day kayaking. We drove on home.
I was tired out and laid down for a nap. Eventually I was rested up enough and went outside to enjoy the evening.
I could see there were some daffodils growing right where I want to put my new chicken house, so I dug them up and transplanted them to where the edge of my chicken run will be. I also dug a hole for a grape plant I want to grow up on the chicken run wire. I got some good dirt for the hole but didn’t get the grape plant planted yet.
It was getting dark so I went on in for the day and that was my day.
