Well what a windy day! Those sunny blue skies were a little misleading, as out on the water the wind dropped the temperature by quite a few degrees-- reminding me that it's still April!

Today I paddled out with honeymooners Julie and David, who were delighted to get so many good looks at bald eagles. From their lookouts on McCracken Point to soaring above us as we paddled, our local eagles were certainly active today! The highlight of the trip came as we rounded the northeast edge of Big Henry and saw an eagle make a dive into the channel, fly back over our heads, and land on a low, overhanging branch next to us. Then we had front row seats watching this eagle finish its small meal while its mate next to him wasn't given a bite!
