Main pipe project
I started out the day working on the main water pipe crossing in the creek. I had the main pipe across the creek from the last time I worked on this project a week ago and could see the pipe was too wobbly and needed some anchors on the ends. But first I had to run another one and one quarter inch pipe across the creek to get some water to one of my brother’s gardens, so I did that first. I also put some pipe insulation on that pipe, then I made some end anchors out of some steel fence posts I had laying around which you can see in the picture on the right side. That made the whole thing much more stable and I was happy with that.
I decided to wait to hook the pipe into the system. A fresh start another day.
Off to Jenner for a sunset
It seemed like it would be a good idea to quit and go on down to Jenner for a sunset paddle, so off I went just after three PM.
The wind was down nicely as I arrived and put my boat in the water. I paddled across to Penny Island and headed a little ways up the river.
The sun was already behind the hill up river so I didn’t go far and started back down the back channel of Penny Island where I saw a little bird diving by the shoreline. It turned out to be a little pied billed grebe.
Bunch of seagulls
Suns going down
I could see the sun was starting to set so I headed on down to the river’s open mouth area and sat and watched the sunset.
I paddled across the river to the boat ramp and put my boat on the car and went on home.
That was my day.
