Friday February 20, 2015 Jenner CA.
It was overcast and cool at Jenner today as I arrived to put my boat in the water. I paddled across the river and was just sitting around when I saw Ray pull into the parking lot with his kayak. He joined me a bit later and we decided to head up the river.
Where’s the bottle
I was looking for that bottle I saw yesterday that I thought might have a note in it, but couldn’t remember where I saw it. I found it just before we got to the muskrat area.
I removed the tape and opened the bottle to read the note. It said, you sucker. Hummm. Who’s the sucker. All I had to do was open it, but hey had to find paper, pen and tape to put it all together, so I think they are the sucker. This is the second bottle we’ve found down here with a sucker note in it. People are weird. :O)
We continued on up to the muskrat nest area and sat for awhile when my cousin Laura and her friend Dave came by in there yaks so we shot the bull for a bit, then they continued on up the river.
Penny Island walk
Ray and I started back down the river and pulled onto Penny Island as Ray wanted to go for a walk on the island.
Spring flowers blooming
We put our boats back in the water and paddled around to he other side of the island as we were heading in.
Unafraid merganser ducks
These three merganser ducks which I also saw yesterday seem to not mind our presence and just swam around us like we weren’t even there. For some reason they aren’t afraid of us for the second day in a row. Two males and a female.
After our paddle and our walk we were both tired out, so we headed on in for the day and went on home.
I had intentions of doing some work on my speedometer, but all I had in me was a nap and that was it for another day.
