Had the canoe out this past weekend for the first time this season.
We left the house at 5am in order put in just as the sun was rising -- the mist and fog and calm waters make the early rising worth it.
We picked the Tay canal and river as we've never been there before, wanted something relatively close and it was recommended to us. It was an amazing paddle -- so many loons and ducks and beavers shared the sunrise with us. Beautiful.
