Tuesday May 10, 2022 Monte Rio CA.
Don in comments mentioned the web page showing the river’s height down by the mouth. I had the page so I checked it and it looked like the river down there was almost 9 feet which is the height they open the mouth mechanically to stop the river flooding in Jenner so I decided to take a ride on down there knowing the wind was real strong there today so I didn’t expect to kayak.
Practicing video skills
I also waned to practice taking small video clips to work on my video skills. My plan was to take a small video clip everywhere I would usually take a picture to see how that might work out to make a video of the day so that’s what I worked on. I also took some stills so I could write this blog.
For some reason the river wasn’t as high as the webpage said so their gauges must be messed up.

Enjoying the day
I made I down to Villa Grande where I was going to sit for quite some time but the wind came up a bit and was blowing me around making it hard to take videos without drifting which was hard to keep the camera on target. This is looking back up the river at Villa Grande.
I did stop and get gas and do some shopping for food in Guerneville before continuing on home.
I did get quite a few video clips. They need to be put together and edited which I haven’t been able to get done yet. This is all mostly just to practice making videos, but as long as I’m practicing I might as well try to make a good video which I’ll post when I get it done.
