Saturday November 29, 2014 Jenner CA.
It rained pretty good last night and I could hear it when I woke this morning. But when I finally got up, the showers were slowing down, so I got my stuff and headed out to Jenner to kayak for the day.
It wasn’t raining as I put my boat in the water, so I took a chance and didn’t put on my rain pants.
I wasn’t sure which way to go today and finally decided I’d head up to Muskrat Nest beach as I hadn’t been up that way for awhile.
There was a light wind as I paddled along the shoreline taking my time getting there.
Muskrat Nest Beach
I didn’t go far, but stayed near the water.
West end of Penny Island
I decided to go down to the river’s mouth to see if anything was going on, so headed on down to the west end of Penny Island were I ran into these two big birds fishing along the shoreline. A great white egret and a great blue heron.
River’s mouth is still open and the surfers were enjoying it
Best waves on the west coast
I’ve been told by local surfers that the best waves on the west coast are right here when the conditions line up.
It looked like the conditions have lined up and there were a number of surfers out there riding the waves. I understand the mouth has to be open in this area for the waves to be good and it sure looked like the waves were real good right now, rolling in as they were.
Ride the waves
There were certainly lots of big waves down here right now and I tried to get some decent surfer pics, but it’s not easy as they disappear behind the big waves or fall in a lot.
Rain pants not needed
I went on home and had a good nap and that was it for another nice day.
