A nice day
The sun was out and the wind was down as I put my boat in at Jenner this morning. I paddled across the river to Penny Island and down along it’s side headed down towards the river’s mouth.
Steelhead coming into the river
Now, Patrick was sitting there for a reason as he was watching some harbor seals working over some steelhead that had just come into the river to spawn and were heading on up along this shoreline right in front of me.
Patrick was high enough so he could see into the water better than I could from my low angle in the kayak.
This one came right over to my boat and tried to get under it. It had some blood on it from a recent seal hit. There were a couple seals working them in front of us, but the seals must have been full as they weren’t giving it their all.
River’s mouth is open
I headed back over towards Penny Island where I saw this little golden eye duck trying to eat something, so I paddled a little closer. It had a little Dungeness crab it had caught and was trying to get it down.
Headed to the upper end of Penny Island
It was so calm today, I just sat around the upper island area and enjoyed the nice day.
I hung around to just after four PM and then went on in to the boat ramp and put my boat on the car and went on home.
That was my day for a nice one.
