Evening Paddle at Jenner with the River’s Mouth Still Closed

Saturday October 5, 2013 Jenner, CA.


I started out the day doing some visiting with friends and was going to go shopping, but the fact that it was a weekend with lots of people out didn’t take me long to cancel the shopping for now.

I decided to hang around the yard for the day just puttering around and then I would go down to Jenner for an evening kayak and watch the sun go down.

Around five PM I headed on down to Jenner and as I approached Jenner it was good to see the wind was down and no fog.

I went on down to the highway one river mouth overlook first and took a couple photos.

This one is looking west out over the Pacific Ocean, with the sun’s reflection in the river water.sun

And a closer view of the closed Russian River mouth, closed up with sand, looking out over the ocean.rivermouthclosed


I drove back to Jenner and put my boat in the water and slowly headed down to the river’s mouth area, where the sun was sinking fast.

I took quite a few sunset pictures. The ones that follow are what I picked out of a couple hundred pictures.

Some seagulls flying around a big rock out in the ocean, just as the sun was getting ready to hurry down.sundown

And just a bit later, this is what it looked like. Notice the lack of wind on the water.sundown4


One more for a closer look at the big rock as the sun was just starting to disappear for the day.sunset

I stayed around this area for another half an hour or so before heading back in for the day. I was off the water around seven thirty PM.

Nice evening paddle at Jenner.
