Some Fog on and off too
It looked like it was going to be nice day when I got up this morning. So, off I went to Jenner to kayak for the day.
As I arrived in Jenner, there was a little band of fog covering the town of Jenner, but not anywhere else. I was hoping it would leave soon.
The water level indicated the river’s mouth was still open.
I put my boat in the water, paddled over to Penny Island and on up the river on the south shoreline.
I caught up with them at one of the measuring stations at Eagle’s landing. I knew these guys as I’ve ran into them before, so I shot the bull with them for a bit. One guy is hiding behind the other guy, just so you don’t think I’m nuts talking about two guys. :O)
They were having some trouble getting the measurement off this station, so after awhile I left them and went on up the river a little ways further, taking my time, of course.
Eventually, they passed me by and went on up the river to some more measuring stations. I turned around and started back down the river. I took the back channel of Penny Island. About half way down, I ran into another seagull eating a crab. It just caught this one and hasn’t pulled it’s legs and claws off yet. Can you imagine having your arms and legs pulled off, one by one and being eaten, while you are alive? Nature is not kind.
I continued on down the island back channel to the little slot near the west end and pulled in for a break. Across from me, on Penny Island, there were some geese sitting on the shore, taking it easy. See them?
Coming though that little band of fog, I got a bit on the cold side so was thinking of going on home where it was warm.
I took my boat out of the water and went on home with intentions of doing a little work on my van exhaust problem. But for some reason I was real tired and the couch win out.
