Mr C got a bonus and he bought me a present!
Yep, that’s how he rolls… am I a lucky gal or what?!?!!
On the last day of his staycation we headed out to a local lake so I could take it out for the first time.
Mr C was in his boat and I was in mine. We had walkie-talkies so we could communicate easily.
I was astounded by how close I could get to the different wildlife while in the kayak as apposed to being in a boat or even a canoe.
The normally skittish turtles stayed basking on their logs
This little dude even swam right up to me.
I was able to float right directly above this big guy
Can you see him?
The waterfowl seemed to not even notice me until I was right up next to them.
The best thing was seeing the signs of another active beaver colony… lots of chewed sticks and stumps
Stubs of scrub trees and pathways also called ‘beaver slides’
And even more exciting was being able to paddle right up to the lodge and see the underwater workings of this amazing animal
Hummm… apparently I didn’t take pics of the underwater structure, guess that means I’ll have to go back… darn!
I’d love to go back in the evening sometime and perhaps see the beavers themselves.
I’ve declared that the kayak is the best present EVER!
Thanks Mr C… you’re the best!
