Morning Paddle

Just finished a new seat for my canoe, and I had to try it out. I loaded up the canoe just before work, so I could hit the water right after. It was a nice and cool morning, upper 50's with clear skies.IMG_20230602_064052800_HDR.jpgIMG_20230602_064056825_HDR.jpgIMG_20230602_064721419_HDR.jpgIMG_20230602_065003273_HDR.jpg
Paddled up on a beaver bringing in fresh cut building materials. He didn't like me getting to close, so he dropped his load and took off after a loud splash, from his big tail slapping the water. I moved in a little closer to see his den, and thought maybe he would invite me in. No such luck with the invite so I moved on.IMG_20230602_065217174_HDR.jpgIMG_20230602_070736043_HDR.jpgIMG_20230602_072344890_HDR.jpgIMG_20230602_071645367_HDR.jpgI paddled up the creek to far and ran out of water. When the lake is full pool, a person can go a long way up from here.IMG_20230602_071627362_HDR.jpgIt was time to turn around and head back out.IMG_20230602_073539352_HDR.jpg
