We celebrated Jon's birthday with a successful* canoe trip down the Huron River. The weather was sunny and crisp and we got to see lots of trees starting to change color. It was a fabulous afternoon.
We shared the river with a few different sets of swans that came surprisingly close to our canoe. Jon is quite the animal lover and was practicing his bird calls (the birds were not impressed!).
The sky was so beautiful that day!
*I made the same canoe trip about 15 years ago with my friend, Laura. Let's just say that we had an awful time. I would say that it was all her fault for not paddling the right way, and I'm pretty sure that she would say the same about me! Ever since that trip, we have decided that canoeing was not a good partner activity for us.
