Kayaked Jenner and Puttered in the Yard

Thursday August 8, 2013 Jenner, CA.

I headed down to Jenner today and was on the water around eleven A.M. It was a bit on the cool side with a light breeze. I didn’t seem to have much energy today, so I crossed over to Penny Island and headed on down towards the river’s mouth.

There were quite a few birds on the west end of Penny Island. Mostly seagulls and terns, but as I was passing some white pelicans flew in and landed.

This is a picture of the birds taking it easy on the west end of Penny Island, as I passed. The pelicans were just landing.birds

I continued on down to the rivers mouth where I sat around for awhile before heading back.

And looking back up the river from the river’s mouth area. Some high fog and clouds made the day a cool one.upview


Like I said, I felt fairly tired today, so I only stayed a couple of hours before pulling out and heading for home. I had a nap and something to eat and another nap. :O)

I set a sprinkler to water some cherry trees and then looked at what I need to do to make a new air cleaner  bracket for the one that broke on my van on the last trip. I think I have an idea of what to make.

And I took the propane stove out with an oven and replaced it with a stove that had no oven. I liked the idea of having an oven in the van, but it made the stove too high in the van to cook on, without a pain.

I did a couple other little chores in the yard and that was about it for the day.

A nice slow day.
