Nice day for a paddle
I thought I’d give my back a break today and go kayaking down at Jenner as the weather was looking good too according the the weather guys and it was.
I put the boat in the water and paddled across to Penny Island and decided to head on down to the river’s mouth area as I hadn’t been down that way in awhile.
Headed to the open mouth
I hung around the mouth area for awhile, then started back up the river along it’s south edge, letting the high tide and the wind take me along to this spot I call the Slot where I stopped for awhile.
Turned back at the Grotto
I hung out there for a bit and then crossed over the river to the other side to check out some bird life there.
I ran into these cormorants just as I paddled around Paddy’s rock. There’s a couple seagulls there too. The river’s water is still too muddy for good fishing so there’s only a few cormorants here now where there are usually hundreds of them.
I made it to the boat ramp, put my boat on the car and headed home.
Monte Rio boat ramp
I did stop at Monte Rio to see how the boat ramp there was doing. It looks like most of the mud is drying up, but it’s still sinky mud were the water puddle is, so maybe in a couple days it will be hardened up too.
And I did some garden enclosure work
Once I made it home a nap was in order and then I went outside and eventually did some work cutting and welding rebar to make another side to my garden enclosure. I got another side about three quarters done before it got dark. Well actually I got tired and quit before it got dark and then just took it easy in the yard for a bit.
And that was my day for a nice one.
