Saturday March 14, 2015 Jenner CA.
I put my boat in the water at Jenner this morning just after 11. I crossed over the river to Penny Island where this king fisher put the tease on me. It stayed long enough for me to get a couple pictures of it before taking off up the river. I only got some photos of it, because I took a chance and got the camera out, even though I was pretty sure it would fly away just as I raised up the camera.
I headed on up the river and ran into these two terns. I haven’t seen any terns around most of the winter.
Osprey with a fish
Shot the bull too
I started down the river again and ran into my cousin Laura and her friend John in their kayaks. We shot the bull for quite awhile before they continued up the river and I continued down the river.
Sitting harbor seal
I paddled on down the island back channel and was sitting near the end of the down river end of the island when I spotted this harbor seal sitting on the gravel just beneath the water not far from me. I didn’t seem to bother it and left it sitting there as I headed down towards the mouth.
River’s mouth is open
I sat around the mouth area watching for about an hour and just started back for the day when these two sea lions who had been swimming around near me earlier, but moving too fast for me to get a picture, surfaced in front of me when I had the camera up and ready to go. They are quick and don’t usually stay on the surface long enough to get a picture.
I headed on in for the day and went on home.
At home, after having something to eat, I went out and did some yard work and just sat around in my chairs around the yard enjoying the evening.
I also did some prep work on figuring out how to hook up the new well. I think I have most of it figured out and just have to measure everything now.
That was it for another nice day.
