Thursday September 3, 2015 Jenner CA.
On the way to Jenner this morning I stopped at Charlie’s in Monte Rio. He wanted to install a ceiling fan and needed a supervisor, so I sat in a chair and gave him advice mostly. I did have to get up once or twice to help when things didn’t seem to go right for him. Persistence pays off and we got it done.
I was at Jenner just after noon and the sun was out and the wind was up, which meant I had the place pretty much to myself. Most people don’t seem to like the wind much. I just deal with it.
I know what this means
When this seagull landed close by and began to eat something in the water. I knew from experience, a harbor seal had a big fish and was eating it under water. The seagull was eating the pieces the seals lost during the process. Sometimes the seals fight or play with a big fish so there might be lots of scraps.
My guess is they were eating a salmon as the salmon usually start to trickle in starting in August and here we are in September already.
I spotted some cormorants by Paddy’s rock. They’d just gotten out of the water and were doing their preening thing. You can see them in all kinds of positions preening away before they can just relax and take it easy.
When I got home, I didn’t do much. But I did sit in the yard and enjoyed the evening.
Prunes are rather amazing as you can dry them without any preservatives. They keep a long time like this and taste good. These are dried more than one can get them in the stores and they eat like candy. Yummmmm.
That was it for my day. Nice day.
