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.
This is the view from the slot. It was real peaceful so I stayed there sitting in my boat for about an hour.
Eventually I paddled down the back channel of the island and stopped in this spot for awhile.
Then I moved on down to the bottom end of the island and sat in this spot for about an hour.
Lots of birds to watch
I watched the birds up ahead., mostly pelicans and gulls.
I paddled on over closer to the birds.
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.
Here you can see some pelicans really going at the bathing, splashing the fresh water all over.
These ducks were diving around me going down for something to eat.
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.
After awhile of sitting at the closed mouth I turned and started my short journey back up the river.
I paddled back along the island’s North side taking it slow and easy.
And made it back to the boat ramp around five and loaded up my boat.
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.
