My friend Rhonda, and her husband Coy, invited me to go kayaking Saturday and of course I said YES!
Plotting on the map it was about 2.8 miles one way. Now for someone who had only ever kayaked once before I must say it was quite a trip.We got there about 8 am and already the temps were in the 80's. It was a bright sunny day and heating up fast.That is where we are headed.I bravely packed the G9 in a zip lock baggie and promised not to tip the boat.Looking back at the bridge before continuing on.Thanks Rhonda for inviting me!I'll just follow you for a bit!What a gorgeous place to be...but it was HOT.The end of the line for the kayaks was where these large boulders sat in the shallows.We parked in the shade and contemplated all the birds we'd seen. A Bald Eagle, Belted Kingfishers, and Great Blue Herons, on
the way out.Heading back I put on the brakes!!!What is THAT up there??!!It looks like a Crocodile!!! OH NO!!!Why am I getting so close!!!Ok maybe I didn't fool you! But I think that dragonfly on the croc's eyeball is fooled!
I've never seen this Dragonfly before but I'll take a guess and say its an Eastern Ringtail.One of the Herons on the way back was as watchful as the rest. Other birds we saw were, an Osprey, a Green Heron, and back at the launch some Brown-headed Nuthatches among other more common birds.Thanks for sending pictures of me in such rare form Rhonda!It was a really fun morning!
