Pelicans and Birds, Nice Day and Some Work On the Van Project

Wednesday August 10, 2016 Jenner CA.

Looking nice out

As you can see it was real nice as I put in the water at Jenner this morning and headed down towards the river’s open mouth area.river



I could see lots of birds as I approached the lower end of Penny Island.herons


White and brown pelicans preening on the gravel.pelicans


And an egret with some mallards.egret


I went by these mallards feeding in the weeds.mallards


River’s mouth is open

I paddled down towards the mouth area and went on by to the end of the river just to the right.mouth

After that, it did some fishing too.egret3


Harbor seals

There were a couple harbor seals frolicking in the water close by.seals


Eventually, I left the area, going by these harbor seals resting on some submerged sand in front of the open mouth.seal

I continued on up the side of Penny Island on the right.island



On the way, I passed by these brown pelicans.pelfly


And I went back by the white pelicans who were now mostly napping.pelrest


I decided to call it a day and went on over to the boat ramp and pulled my boat out and went on home.

Work on the van project

After a short rest, I went out and worked on the van. I installed the rest of the clutch linkage and adjusted it, so that’s done. I tried the larger fan belts I bought for the ones that were just a little too tight to install and found them way oversize, so I’ll try again on that one.

I worked on how to install an air filter as I wanted to use the old one I had on the old engine, but I was having a hard time making it fit now. I haven’t decided to use what I have or buy a new one. I got the old one in there all right, but there’s not really a lot of room for the type of filter it is, so I’ll have to decide on what to do on that one.

I need the right spark plug wires and I need to hook up all the electrical stuff now and I’m almost there.

That was my day.
