Wednesday October 24, 2018 Jenner CA.
I had a long drive home the other day and made it just after dark safely.
The next day I took it easy and unloaded the van and napped a bit.
This morning I decided to go down to Jenner for a yak. I arrived around eleven and put my boat in the water. I talked with a a couple putting in at the ramp which I ran into later near the mouth.
River’s mouth closed
I paddled across the river to Penny Island and sat here for a bit enjoying the day and deciding which way to go. It was high tide and the water level was up. It also looked like the river’s mouth might be closed for the first time this year so I decided to go down and check it out.
Crossing the river
Mouth area can be dangerous
Checking out the jetty
Huge wave hits
Eventually I started back up the river running into the people I talked with on the ramp and chatted for a bit then continued on past the river’s mouth. That huge wave I mentioned earlier splashed in over the cement jetty caused a lot of the birds to take flight. I missed the wave but you can see the jetty is all white from the foam of the wave. Anyone on the jetty at this time would have been wiped out. Luckily no one was on it at the time. It’s really a very dangerous place but most people don’t realize it.
Up the back channel
I hung around this area and watched and eventually went to the boat ramp and took my boat out of the water and headed for home.
On the way I stopped at Cheryl and John’s and chatted with them for a bit then left and went over to Ray’s house and chatted with him and his wife for a bit.
I finally made it home for a nap and that was my day.
