Friday October 16, 2015 Jenner CA.
Things were quiet as I pulled into Jenner this morning. So quiet you wouldn’t think it was a Friday, but that was ok with me as that’s the way I like it.
It opened it’s eyes, but since I was already so close, it just sat there. Note the little white feather on the end of it’s bill which is always an indicator that it had just been preening not long ago.
I sat with the bird for about ten minutes, both of us just taking it easy.
And I went by my buddy the harbor seal resting on a submerged redwood log. When the mouth is closed and the water comes up, their regular logs up the river go way under the water, so they seem to move down river here to rest.
So, I paddled over to check the cow out to make sure it wasn’t stuck in the mud or anything like that. As I approached, the cow moved up on the shoreline, so I knew it was ok.
Things were real quiet at the mouth area also. Not many birds and most of the harbor seals had left to be on the ocean side as it’s a long ways for them to cross over the sand, so most of them tend to stay on the ocean side.
I was getting warmer so I had to take off another shirt as I headed back in for the day.
I took my boat out of the water and headed on home, but decided to stop in and see how Ray was doing. He’s been having some
GERD problems lately. I visited with him and his wife for about an hour then went on home for a nap.
I had plans to do some more digging on my water pipe project, but that didn’t happen. Instead, I just puttered around the yard for the rest of the day.
