Weekend Wanderings!


This weekend kept me busy. Bill had to work on saturday but my son came over and I got to enjoy some play time with Nicholas.

Guess who is walking now and who doesn't stay still for long, so he kept me busy running after him.



Sunday we went for a paddle in our harbor. The weather was unpredictable and I didn't want to be too far from the launch in case a storm came in. It was overcast and it did rain a few times, but the nice thing was, no crowds, calm waters and cool air.



The tides were high so we could get right into the coves and enjoy the wildlife.



The wild fowl loved the weather too.



With the high tides we could go all the way into the inlets, the bull rush grows really tall in this area.



Today we went out with my Brother and Sister in law. I realized after a few minutes that they are not fast paddlers, so we slowed down the pace and followed them. I was able to talk my brother into going up the to ocean and even though he was nervous, he realized how fun and beautiful it was, once we got there.

Once paddling up an inlet, we met a large object as we came around a corner. Surprise ... when the head came out of the water we were face to face with a very large moose.
Your little guy is growing by leaps and bounds.
