River Dog Paddleabout

An afternoon on the Connecticut River

We often launch our canoe from this spot.

We paddle into the sandy river's edge. We walk up the bank and into a sunny, green area. There are no footprints. As we walk through the bushes we get stung by the prickers. Ouch! We stay here for awhile and keep a lookout. 

Mt. Tom. The communication towers blink at us. I always get a good signal from here.  We paddle on. 

We see a shape in the distance. 

Branches break from trees along the banks and drift till they get caught close to shore. We like how they create shapes and personalities. This one will probably stay all summer. We'll call him Leopold!
