Get a yak in
I thought I better get a yak in while I could so I headed on down to Jenner today. It was overcast mostly with a cool breeze coming off the ocean.
I put my boat in the water and decided to head on down to the mouth to see what was going on.
About one of these little paddle boats comes down the river each year from up the river someplace. I think I last saw this one just below Monte Rio the other day. They are usually old and mostly garbage.
Headed down to the mouth
Harbor seals are hunting big fish
I sat here by the big rock for awhile watching things. I could see some seal wakes across the river from me. I could see from the wakes that the harbor seals where hunting big fish along the river’s edge.
I paddled on over to where the seals were hunting and sat in my boat watching for any action.
The seals were hunting up and down the shoreline. Several of them went right under my boat in shallow water. Here’s the wake from one of them hunting by me. It went right under me shaking my boat a bit.
I watched the seals for awhile but didn’t see them get anything.
I decided to quit early today as I have some stuff to do at home so I headed in.
I paddled over to Penny Island and went up it’s north side and crossed over to the boat ramp and went on home for the day.
Once home I didn’t waste any time and grabbed a shovel and rode the quad up the hill. I needed to do some shovel work on one of the roads. A spot is sinking a bit and has some cracks I want to fill in so more water doesn’t go into the cracks and cause more damage when it rains again.
That didn’t take long before I was headed down the hill again. Forgot the camera.
Did some wash
Back home I gathered all the stuff from the van, including all my water clothes and did some wash.
I put the bed back together with fresh stuff and sorted some stuff to get ready for a trip to Port Orford Oregon in a couple days.
I also greased the rear drive line on the van which I like to do before each trip.
That was my day.
