We spent a lovely Sunday morning on the river.
We put the kayaks in at 5:30 a.m., just in time to see the sun come up over the trees on the opposite shore.
My husband brought his fishing gear.
We paddled about a mile and a half up river from where we put in. Just past the I-295 bridge.
We saw all kinds of wildlife - beavers, eagles, various water birds, and this lone deer on the shore.
Things started warming up and the wind picked up around 8:00 a.m.
But at that point, we were starting our trip back, and there was a lot less paddling to do, as the current was on our side.
The fishing was a huge success. He caught about a dozen small-mouth bass.
This group of ducks was actually two mother ducks with all their babies. And they weren't really babies anymore, just young. But still following their moms around. It was Kate and Allie of the duck world.
If only we could do this every day...
