Mariton: Kayaking in the Moonlight

August 11, 2011

We enjoyed the perfect night for the Moonlight Kayak Trip.  We launched in time to watch the orange glow of sunset on the water.  Erich Boenzli took the photo above. 

We also saw an Osprey perched in a snag.  It is too dark to see the Osprey in the photo, but it stayed motionless as we watched it.  We also saw a Great Blue Heron standing like a statue on the pilings along the lake shore.

The lake was smooth.  The temperature was comfortable.  The sky was placid.  The moon was bright.  The group of people was wonderful.  We even saw shooting stars.
