Paddle at Jenner

I hadn’t been paddling for quite some time and the wind was down today so off I went about 11 to Jenner.

I put in my boat and paddled across the river to Penny Island and paddled into this little slot at the top end of the island where I like to sit and watch.island1


Nice spot

This is the view from the slot. It was real peaceful so I stayed there sitting in my boat for about an hour.slot2


Sit spot

Eventually I paddled down the back channel of the island and stopped in this spot for awhile.logs3


Watch spot

Then I moved on down to the bottom end of the island and sat in this spot for about an hour.river4


Lots of birds to watch

I watched the birds up ahead., mostly pelicans and gulls.birds5


I paddled on over closer to the birds.pelicans6


Bathing pelicans

These pelicans just came off the ocean where they’d been feeding this morning and are now in fresh water so they bathe likely washing out the salt.bathing7


Here you can see some pelicans really going at the bathing, splashing the fresh water all over.bath8


Diving ducks

These ducks were diving around me going down for something to eat.ducks10


River’s mouth is closed

I paddled into the closed river mouth to have a look. The ocean was beating on the cement jetty where the river usually runs into the ocean. With the mouth closed the river is dammed up so it’s like a big lake.ocean11


After awhile of sitting at the closed mouth I turned and started my short journey back up the river.river11


I paddled back along the island’s North side taking it slow and easy.river12


Boat ramp

And made it back to the boat ramp around five and loaded up my boat.ramp13


Gas stove repairs

Back home I had a little nap then went over to a neighbor’s to see what was wrong with her gas stove as it wouldn’t stay lit. I worked on it for a bit and fixed it maybe. She will try it out tomorrow and see how it bakes or not.

Nice day.
