7/12/b Dazzle canoeing the Au Sable

After Dog Scout camp, a few of us went on a short river trip on the beautiful Au Sable river in MI. It's such clear water, even when the bottom is really deep it is still visible. I enjoy watching all the little (& not so little) fish as well as other wildlife. We saw a mink carrying her baby on the shore, ducks, lots of different kinds of birds, etc.

 

Dazzle was a bit excited at first and had a hard time sitting still, then he settled in and laid down to relax and watch the world float by. While I know my back can't handle kayaking anymore, it was well worth the discomfort to try the canoe and be able to enjoy this river again (& to get Dazzle the canoeing badge) :-)
