A call of a loon;
Quiet splashing, rhythmic sounds,
Kayak glides along.
Yesterday’s warm temperatures and sunshine beckoned.
So, following the family supper, some of us embarked on an evening’s paddle. Well, as many as could fit into two canoes and a single-person kayak. 😀
We launched our craft onto Taylor Lake and eventually made it to the channel leading to adjacent Clayton Lake….and ultimately the village of Clayton where we finished just as it was getting dark.
It’s a lovely paddling excursion….usually taking about two hours.
There are quite a few cottages along the shores of Taylor Lake, with avid boaters and fishing enthusiasts sharing the water….and everyone respecting the speeds near other boaters. By contrast, Clayton Lake is quieter.
We were lucky and were treated to multiple loon calls, the sighting of a loon family of three, and a pretty sunset.
Here are some more photos…
A juvenile loon…
Sunset on Taylor Lake
From the time the sun was just touching the top of the trees to my extracting my iPhone from the protective plastic box tucked inside my life vest and then going for a photo, as you can see the sun went into hiding – moved so fast! Anyway….still looks pretty over the water like that.
Kayaking is a lot of fun!
(Good time to add in a selfie….) 😀
On Clayton Lake
I took a photo of the view behind me with the pretty clouds and the pinks and purples…..getting darker fast.
