Tuesday September 15, 2020 Jenner CA.
I headed out to Jenner to kayak for the day around noon.
I put the boat in at the boat ramp and headed across the river and down towards the river’s mouth along Penny Island’s edge.
I had to paddle by this great blue heron that gave out a big squawk as it flew into the air. Fog bank over the ocean in the background.
Lots of birds
There were a bunch of seagulls on the bottom end of Penny Island just resting. The brown pelicans were starting to come in off the ocean from this morning’s feeding.
Some of the birds on the end of the island. Brown pelicans and seagulls.
There were a couple of seals resting on the gravel in the water. Here’s one of them.
Headed to the mouth
I was headed down to the river’s open mouth just up ahead.
I went by these birds resting and taking it easy.
Pelicans and seagulls.
The ocean was fairly rough today. Ocean waves breaking on the rocks.
More pelicans resting on the right side of the open mouth looking out towards the ocean.
A wave breaks over the rocks.
For some reason the harbor seal population is down. There’s usually a couple hundred of them but since the fires there’s only been around 20 or 30 of them resting on the sand.
One last look and I turned and headed on up the river just above Penny Island.
I took my time going up river to this spot just above the island. I was tired for some reason so pulled into shore where I could lay on the grass for a bit of a nap.
From here I paddled back to the boat ramp and loaded up the boat and went on home for the day.
I was still tired out when I got home so I napped a bit.
The rest of the day I chair hopped and puttered around the yard taking care of the chickens and just watching them do their thing.
