Calm Waters

We went for an evening paddle yesterday with a good friend.  She hadn’t been out in a couple weeks and, actually, neither had we.  The breeze was dying down and the water was getting calmer.  A great evening for a paddle.

We were pleased to see the pair of loons out.  


We chased this kingfisher down the shoreline until it decided to fly back to where it started.

This hawk flew into this tree and posed while I took several photos.

The moon had already risen as the sun was getting lower in the sky.

This heron was back on its perch high in a dead tree.  I’ve seen a heron here several times.


It was a quiet evening, but a great evening to be on the lake.
