paddling a canoe

Yesterday Joe and I rented canoes through the UW and paddled through parts of the Washington Park Arboretum.

We saw many female mallard ducks, some of which decided that we were very interesting.

Here's my goofy and wonderful husband.

Look how much my hair has grown!

There are a few spots in the arboretum where you can pull up to the shore. We stopped at one and traded seats. These ducks, I think, were hoping for some food.

In order to get to the arboretum from UW, you have to paddle below parts of the 520 bridge. We spotted this heron standing on the overpass, watching the water.

I love seeing how nature copes with city life.
