Spring is coming.

Yesterday, Andrew and I took advantage of the slightly warmer weather and went canoeing. We have been itching to do something outside. So, we borrowed a canoe from Josh and pushed off his dock around 3 p.m. Josh was glad to have a brief respit from working and tagged along for a while in his kayak. The scenery was an assortment of browns and was rather dead looking compared to the vibrant and flourishing scences of summer when the pond is spotted by myriads of green lily pads. But, the reflections were gorgeous and there were wildlife inhabitants around to watch. Each season has its own beauty. Andrew educated me on some of the names of birds I saw and answered many of my questions regarding their habits and lifestyles. It was very peaceful and relaxing to be breathing in the fresh air and gliding on top of water. I look forward to the summer to come where more of these trips can be made in much warmer weather.




  1. What body of water? Where are your life jackets?
    Summer brings mosquitoes-except for the possibility of hypothermia, you picked a good time of year to be out=)

  2. bring on the summer heat and canoeing/kayaking!
