Judy leads the way

Today, I had the pleasure of spending time with my good friends, Pat & Judy. We went kayaking where the Stockport Creek meets the Hudson River and it was a great adventure. Pat owns a Honda Fit also, and it is something to see kayaks longer than the car riding on top! I used Judy's kayak, as I didn't load my own before going up to Troy to visit them!

We saw an eagle and a little golden finch (not at the same time). We saw a beaver's den and an old shanty and summer camps along the creek. We found and explored waterways with cattails and purple flowers growing high on either side of us. It was easy to imagine I was kayaking through the canals in the Everglades, without the alligators!
