Kayaking Around Jenner and Working On the Weed Mower Project

Wednesday June 7, 2017 Jenner CA.

Nice day to get out on the water

It was overcast but the wind was down to only a breeze as I put my boat in the water at Jenner this morning. I headed across the river and on up at a very slow pace, taking my time. Some ducks up ahead.river


I passed by these  male mallard ducks feeding in the water.mallards


And this female mallard with her young that she is protecting and watching out for.duckies


Just past the mallard ducks I went by these merganser ducks  resting on this old redwood stump. That’s a male on the right.gansers


I stopped and sat in this spot for a  bit.reeds


And this spot working my way up the river about a mile.sit


I was headed up to a place I call Muskrat, just a ways up ahead.reedss


I paddled on by this rock just a little ways further.rock


Taking it easy at Muskrat

I made it to Muskrat and turned around and sat for a half hour or so watching things.sit2


From Muskrat, I crossed over the river here and paddled down that side looking for wild life.cross


I went by this gravel beach which usually has a lot of birds on it, but not today.gravel


Only this male merganser duck was there today.gans


Heading in to the boat ramp

I continued on down that side of the river and headed on in for the day going by here. The boat ramp is just up ahead on the right.jenner


I pulled my boat out and tied it to the top of the car and went on home for the day.

Working on the mower project

After a nap, I went out and started working on the weed mower project.

I was able to get the new spindle mounted securely.spindle


‘Then I worked on figuring out how to lift the engine up about an inch and started construction on a bracket that will lift the engine and allow the engine to be adjusted for belt tension.

It’s coming together

This is the way it should look once I finish installing the new adjusting bracket which I’m still working on.mower


I got a good start on that project and it looks like it will all work out. No deer in the yard today, so maybe I got it fixed.

And that was my day.

    Great day for a kayak ride. If I could slow Bill down enough to use ours more, I would!
