Nothing better to do
The weather guys said it was going to be a bit windy today at Jenner. Since I have nothing better to do, I drove on down there and put my boat in the water. The wind was up to about ten or fifteen miles an hour, still doable.
I wasn’t sure which way to go today so I paddled over to the little channel on the upper end of Penny Island to think about it.
My buddy the great blue heron
Paddling down to the river’s mouth area
I think I stayed there about a half hour or so and decided to head on down towards the river’s mouth area as I haven’t been down that way in a few days or so.
The river’s mouth is open to the ocean
No wind in the slot
With the wind up, I didn’t stay long and headed on over to the island’s back channel and paddled into what I call the slot which is mostly out of the wind.
Walk on the island would be nice
I was thinking a little walk on the bottom end of Penny Island might be a good idea.
Well meaning people’s signs turn to trash
There’s a lesson here for the students, but will they get it?
The signs were put up in late September I believe as the classes are in October.
Nice walk through the grass
I was working my way around the lower end of the island and stopped on this log for a short break. My boat is across the grass, just above center and I’m continuing my walk off to the right of the picture.
The wind finally slows up
The wind had slowed down quite a bit while I was on my walk on the island and now it was mostly a stiff breeze. I put my boat back in the water and paddled on up the island’s back channel to it’s upper end which I went around to here where I’m just getting ready to cross over the river to the boat ramp.
I paddled across to the boat ramp and loaded my boat on the car and drove on home for the day.
That was my day for another nice one.
