Looking like a nice day
Ray’s truck was in the parking lot at Jenner this morning as I drove in, so I looked for him in his boat and saw him in the little channel on the upper end of the island. I put my boat in the water and headed on over that way to join him going across here, headed to the trees in the middle of the picture.
It was a nice day. The sun was out and the wind was down. We could hear the ocean pounding on the sandy beaches and it sure sounded like the ocean was real rough today.
High tide and the mouth is open
Lots of waves were coming into the river through the mouth causing a lot of wave action in the river so we didn’t stay long and started heading back up the river going up the Penny Island back channel and on up to eagle’s landing were Ray said he saw some wild turkeys over by Paddy’s rock, so we crossed over to that side of the river to look for the turkeys.
We had seen the wild turkeys by some willow trees on the river’s edge, but when we paddled over by the trees we couldn’t see any turkeys. That’s because they were all hiding under the willow tree. Finally one of the turkeys moved and we spotted them. They finally came out the side so we could see them.
Ashore for a hike
Ray wanted to go to shore for a little walk so we paddled across the river to muskrat where there is a trail head up to a rock I call buzzard rock.
To get there, first we had to walk up the hill above it so we stopped at this nice spot for a break. I call it the break area.. Just sit on the green grass there, nice and it’s out of the poison oak too.
On top of Buzzard rock
After a good break on the rock we headed on back on the trail. Here’s Ray as he approaches the spot were we pulled our boats into shore. A place I all muskrat as there are a bunch of muskrat nests here.
We made it to the ramp and took our boats out and went on home for the day
At home I puttered around the yard mostly. I did have a look at why my car’s heater blower fan quit this morning. But I wasn’t into it and I only looked half heartedly so I didn’t discover anything on that one yet.
That was my day for a nice one.
