I know I've been absent all week, things have been busy (VERY busy) at work, and I got a stomach bug that lingered thru the weekend. I'll tell the work tale later in the week, for now - let's enjoy videos and photos from recent kayaking trips.
The swans didn't like it when I got too close to them, but were they ever magnificent when they took off.
Listen to this one with your eyes closed, it's not particularly pretty - the point was to catch the bird sounds which were incredible in that section of the river. The birds were so loud, and raucous - flying about, swooping down to get sips of water from the river; protecting their nests - it really was amazing.
These swans were making noise and waddling around. None of the swans were interested in having us get too close
I saw a muskrat swimming along. At first I thought it was a beaver but was way too small, and when I saw that skinny ratty tale - well..hello rat by another name!
He looked to have a cozy house amongst the tree roots.
Happy Animal Wednesday everyone!
