First spring outing in the kayak: Who can identify these ducks??

Miraculously we hit 70 degrees on Sunday and out came the kayaks! I live in central Massachusetts and not that long ago we were buried under over 4 feet of snow. Even though the front walkway, the deck and the back half of the driveway have been clear for a few weeks now, I still […]
