Saturday January 10, 2015 Monte Rio CA.
Today, I had a memorial to go to at 1PM, so I had to keep myself busy for a bit. I went out in the yard and did some work on my new well drilling site. Some of the bamboo was leaning over too far and would get in the way of the drill boom, so I had to cut the leaners out.
That was enough to tire me out so I had a nap until it was time to go to the memorial.
I did leave a bit early to go down to the local tire shop to see about getting some tires for my car. They would have to order some tires as they only had two to fit my car.
Frank was a real old timer from this area and the place was packed. I shot the bull, I mean talked with some of the old timers I know and some I didn’t know. Funny how I’m getting to be an old timer now that I’m older and watching old timers die off means my turn is coming up, hopefully not too soon.
Headed to the boat ramp
Well, the crowd was finally more than I could handle so I headed on down to the Monte Rio boat ramp and put my boat into the water and headed on down the river.
I continued on down the river at my leisurely slow pace.
Villa Grande Hole
I made it down to the Villa Grande hole and pulled in here and watched the guy fish down that way, which is barely visible in this picture. He seemed to know what he was doing, but didn’t catch any fish while I watched.
There were still some fishermen in the slot so I stopped and talked with them some more. Not much action since I went by them earlier, but everyone agreed, it was a nice day to be out on the river.
I pulled my boat out of the water and went on home for the day.
