It was supposed to be a beautiful day Friday 08/07/20 snuggled between either very hot or rainy days, and so Sue and I loaded the kayaks on top of The Tank to look for loons on Chalk Pond.
Heading out from shore into Chalk Pond.
Shot I took of Sue paddling past the loon preserve area.
Mom and Dad surrounding their baby, and making a lot of squawking noises to protect it from us as we paddled past.
Leaned back and relaxed in a shady spot to have a lunch that Sue had prepared for us.
We kept disturbing this guy as we paddled along the shoreline. We'd get close, and off he'd go in a wild flapping of his wings. But he'd drop down onto the shore just a little way, only to be started again as we approached.
Back at the house with wine and snacks ready for some combat trash-talk backgammon before tearing into the pizza we were having for dinner.
