The River’s Mouth is Closing On Up, Maybe

A drive down to the river’s mouth overlook

It was raining good when I got up this morning, so I wasn’t sure what I should do today. After sitting around for awhile, I decided to do some more work on finding out why my car has a hesitation when cold.

After messing around with it a bit and doing some tests, I decided to drive on down to Jenner for a test drive and see how it was doing. Maybe I’d go kayaking too if the weather was good.

I drove down to the river overlook at the mouth and took a look see.

The mouth is still open, but on it’s way to closing.

See that wave breaking over the jetty? It’ full of sand and washes it over the jetty and deposits it in the river’s mouth.sand


A closer picture of the sand building up at the river’s mouth. If it wasn’t high tide in this photo, the water in the mouth would be real shallow or even closed at this time, but I can’t tell for sure.closing


Either way, the river’s mouth is closing and should soon be closed if the rough ocean keeps up.

The wind in Jenner was up and cold and after standing around taking these photos I was cold and decided to go on home and do some more work on the car and more research.
