Day 144 – Pacific Coast Highway Part 3

Overlook Near Jenner

Petey and I survived the evening on the street and followed the Russian River back to Highway 1 where we stopped at an overlook near Jenner.  Here, I met John who recently returned to the mainland after spending the last seven years in the U.S. Virgin Islands working on cabinetry for yachts.  He had a large telescope on a tripod and a clipboard on the hood of his car.  I asked what he was recording and he replied the type and numbers of seals in the channel below.  The volunteer organization was studying the effects on the seals from dredging the channel for the salmon.  After chatting for a while, he had to get back to counting and I had to move on.
