Atchafalaya Weekend #2

-Sunday I went canoe paddling with CC Lockwood and a group through the Grand Lake area of the Atchafalaya Basin. I had CC as a canoe partner, which I was so grateful for because I haven't paddled since I was 12 and was kinda anxious. My arms are little sore today, but not as bad as I had expected.

A few photos from Sunday 04/05/09:

Early in the day

Duckweed, which seems to change from silver to green depending on the light.


CC and a Fishing Spider

The sunset

We waited until the sunset was gone then paddled slowly back in the moonlight (and thankfully it was quite a full moon) . We were quiet and I saw fireflies and the frogs, crickets and other Atchafalaya critters surrounded us and they were all I could hear. It was one of the best experiences ever. I really want a canoe now...

I have a lot more photos to go through and post...
Such a fun weekend and the weather was just beautiful.
