Fall Sunny day Paddling the Frenchmen's Creek, Niagara
Well I carted mine and my friend Barb's Kayaks down to Niagara for one more paddle before we had to tuck them away for the winter. My daughter Wendy was in Barb's Kayak and my friend Catharine had her little 10 footer. The weather was truly a blessing since the week prior was so cold and wet!!!! I debated if I should load them up and travel so far with them, but I am so grateful I went ahead with my decison to take them anyway!!!!!We paddle a small tributary off of the Mighty Niagara, and enjoyed the wildlife and fall colors. We witness a Red Tail hawk that tried to capture a small Grebe that was fishing in the Creek! It was a close call for the Grebe, but it dove just in time to prevent those deadly talons of the Huge Red Tail. There were also many fish hunting for we witnessed many small minnows trying to escape by jumping out of the water, at least 10" or higher! It was a Great experience that I Loved sharing with my daughter and Good friend Catharine. We posed for a " Hey Look we Made it" shot at the end of our 2 1/2 hour paddle. it sure was a Fun Girl Time!!!!!
