Puttering paddle

A “just us” paddle on the Bark

We went round-trip downstream (left) from Burnt Village and back – about halfway to the Rock River.

Sort of a “putter” of a trip.

We saw an eagle! Also spied turtles, heron, kingfisher, woodpecker, swallows, and fish. Saw fresh water clam shells. Kingfisher was always ahead of us – teasing Mary with camera. Finally got an image or two. A fun chase.

Met a nice young man at the end of ride who lives nearby. Talked with him about eagles and other chitchat.

No blockages – water OK but low in spots, luckily not on the main channel.
