Watching the Big Waves and Some Road Repairs Before It Rains

Monday January 15, 2018 Jenner CA.

Good time to get a yak in

It looked like it was going to start a rainy cycle tonight so I thought I better get out for a yak while I can.

I put my boat in at Jenner and paddled across to Penny Island to decide which way to go today. river1


Rough ocean

I could see and hear the ocean pounding away at the beaches and the wind was down so I decided to head down to the river’s mouth area.

From Penny Island, it looked like this.ocean3


As I paddled off the bottom end of Penny Island I went by this loon.loon4


And I paddled by all these seagulls resting on the beach and in the water.birds8


Wave after wave was beating against the jetty making these big splashes.roller9


I chatted with this lady for a bit in front of the mouth.lady6


Watching the big waves

And just sat around and watched.waves5


There were one or two sea lions swimming around in front of me as well as a number of harbor seals.

This harbor seal is resting on the sands by the river’s mouth.seal7


Headed back in for the day

I hung around for about an hour then headed back in for the day.

Here I’m approaching the bottom end of Penny Island,  headed in for the day.island10


Goose or a big duck

I spotted this bird on the island. I think it is some kind of goose or a big duck, leaning on a big duck. First time I’ve seen this type around here.goose11


I quit early as I have some other stuff to do today.

Picked up my tire

Once my boat was out and on the car I headed back to Guerneville to Country Tire to pick up the Toyota tire they were trying to seal up the rim for me.

Jumped on the quad

I picked it up and drove on home. Once home I wasted no time.  I found my shovel and hopped on the quad runner to head up into the hills to do some repairs with the shovel, stopping at our rental to check on the water leak, but no one was home again.

Since I had work to do I left my camera at home, but I should of taken it with me.

I did the shoveling draining the water off the road so it won’t wash out.

Headed to the top of the world

After that I rode my quad over to my cousin’s, a neighbor and rode up to what they call the top of the world as my brother Barry has been working on brushing out their roads. Looks like he’s been working his butt off opening the roads. It’s a nice ride and the view was nice too.

I headed back down the hill and went on home and that was it for me today.

    Hi Bob! I’m the one in the picture who you met on the water yesterday! Nice talking to you and nice blog. I’d love to get a copy of that photo if possible–it’s a nice shot and the only pictures I have of me kayaking are usually just the front of my boat!

    Happy paddling!

    What a fun day! Love the crashing waves as long as it doesn’t put me in danger. :)
