So glad we did not let a few showers discourage us, the sun was soon shining down on our first voyage. It took us a while to get the hang of who should paddle when and zigged and zagged at first. We splashed each other some but not bad for our first venture!
This loon kept us company and entertained us with his expert diving skills, disappearing under the water for long periods of time and then popping up in a totally different spot 100 feet away. He had the last laugh (as the call of the loon sounds like) as he dried his wings and headed off to dive again. We saw a keosk notice about the loon population being threatened, sure hope this guy and his two friends manage to raise some new chicks successfully.
