Not windy at Monte Rio
After checking the weather and seeing it was going to be real windy down at Jenner today, I drove on down to Monte Rio where I knew the wind would be a lot less.
Since I cleaned off a lot of the mud on the boat ramp yesterday, I was able to get in the water without getting muddy.
The river was up five or six feet above summer level and a bit muddy. Muddy enough so no one was fishing.
There was some current, but not too bad in most places.
There was some wind but the sun was out and if I could stay in the sun it was warm enough.

Andrew was on the shady side of the river where the sun was being blocked by the mountain, so I was getting real chilled while I talked with him. When he left, I crossed back over the river to the sunny side an sat and warmed up a bit before starting on up the river.
There was only one spot I had to work at going back up river that the current was a bit strong, just below the boat ramp at the top of the slot, by the little island. It wasn’t too bad, but I did have to paddle a bit to get through it.
I had some plans to do some things in the yard, but at home, it was cool out and I got chilled so I spent the rest of the day in the house doing mostly nothing.
That was my day.
