Thursday December 1, 2022 Jenner CA.
It rained pretty good last night and finally stopped this morning some time before I got it going.
Since it was damp out and a bit on the cool side, I didn’t have anything planned for the day, so I had to sit around a bit and think on it.
I came up with some stuff to do and had a plan to head for the river, but not to kayak, although I almost did when I saw the river.
I drove on down to Monte Rio and stopped at the boat ramp to have a look at the river. It was up a couple of feet indicating the river’s mouth was closed up at the ocean where I’ll be going a bit later.
I got back in my car and drove about five miles down to this spot they call Duncan’s Mills as that’s where Duncan used to have a saw mill in the olden days. Note the train car. This was the end of the line for the train that used to be in here until about 1935. They had to turn the engine around on one of those things they call a turn table. I made a left turn here to do some business with the state park guys.
State Park guys
I was telling the lady at the front desk who I was and I wanted to see Bill when a guy named Brendon ,who works here, heard me in the back. He said Bill was in and Terry the big boss was also here, even better.
We are working with them to try and sell our family property to the state parks system.
We had a nice chat and shot the bull a bit too and had a nice visit.
Headed to the ocean
I could see the state park guys were real busy and had stuff to do so I didn’t stay too long and got back in my car and drove down the highway towards the ocean about five miles.
That’s the river in front of you and the ocean on the other side of the sandy beach, looking mostly south. You can see the river’s mouth to the ocean is closed so no water from the river is flowing into the ocean.
I headed for home stopping to visit some friends and then headed on home.
