We got a canoe! She’s a beauty! A shade and texture reminiscent of a yellow toenail. So until we have a better name for our boat, I’ll refer to her as “Toenail of the Sun” or (una del pie de sol in Spanish).
It was a spectacular fall weekend- blue skies, 70 degrees, foliage changing to shades of red, orange, and yellow all around us. We took Toenail of the Sun out for her maiden voyage yesterday in Lake Washington. Ant has added a motor so we don’t have to row all of the time. Pretty nice.
We saw turtles, a great blue heron, and a bald eagle perched on a lamppost.
We feel like kids on an unsupervised expedition. The best part about it is we only need to travel a few miles at the most to explore Lake Washington and Lake Union in our canoe.
