I busied myself indoors, sewing paddle bags and phoning my brothers in California. It was a Sunday after all.
At dusk, things seemed to calm down.
So, I hopped in the Jeep, kayak ready on the roof, and nipped over to the Arboretum to "chill" out on the water.
I saw an eagle, a woodpecker... harlequin ducks and mergansers as well as many ducks and great blue herons. Best of all, 3 beavers!
I think they live here.
