The footprints pointed east, the direction I paddles, so I kept an eye on the shore and docks.
Wonder if this is the one who left the trail/
Into the canal.
Into Lake Minnehaha.
Always good to get a photo of wood ducks. On the suburban lakes, you can get much closer than on wild Blackwater Creek, where this past weekend, I saw them constantly, but as soon as I got within 15 yards, they took off. Here, with houses, jet skiers, wake boarders and other madness (on weekends) a solo kayaker is just part of the background for these colorful fowl.
Back through the canal to Lake Maitland.
