Tuesday October 20, 2015 Jenner CA.
I put my boat in at Jenner this morning and paddled across to Penny Island and headed down along it’s side towards the closed river’s mouth area.
Cormorants fishing away
I could see a bunch of cormorants hunting fish just off the end of the island and they kept just ahead of me as I made my way towards the end of the river fishing away.
The pelican landed ok.
Followed the cormorants
It was rather warm there by the rock as I sat in the sun, so I didn’t stay too long.
On the way past the closed river’s mouth, these two harbor seals where scooting across the sandy beach from the ocean headed for he river. They look like they have to work rather hard to walk across the sand and stopped often.
My poor old stump
We saw the vandals
As it was, we saw the vandals yesterday but didn’t realize they had done this. Two guys in a green canoe using kayak paddles went by us yesterday pulling something behind them. I realized today those where the guys who had done this. They were having trouble pulling the thing as we saw them go by while we sat on the upper end of Penny Island.
I continued on up the back channel and went on up the river towards the muskrat nest area where I was watching a seagull waiting for a bit of fish the harbor seals were eating under water. I watched a long time but the seals didn’t show me the fish.
I went on down the north shoreline looking for birds along the way as it’s a good place to see them and I never know what I might go by.
I continued on down the river’s side until I got to the ramp at Jenner and pulled out for the day and went on home.
After a bit of a break at home, I went on over to check out the condition of the water main pipe I broke the other day and did some work digging around the break so I can do a repair which I will likely do tomorrow.
I set the job up by bringing over the pipe parts and stuff I will need to do the repair. I’m also doing some other pipe work at the same time which needs to be done. That’s why the pipe got broken in the first place. I think I’m ready to go.
That was my day for a nice one, except for seeing my old redwood stump cut up.
