Spent the day kayaking on the Tay River, near Perth, Ontario. It was a perfect day on the water – no wind, beautiful sunshine and plenty of wildlife.
Was not fast enough to capture the snapping turtle with the camera – could not believe his size – he was as big as a dinner plate! Did manage to capture a snake basking in the sunshine!
A little tough to see – I was not even nearly close enough – but the fish were very active, splashing about in the water.
Not all the animal life was wild – met some lovely people out for a paddle with their dogs. Aren’t they adorable!
A peaceful day on the water….love the scenery
Love finding new places to kayak and explore. The Tay River is a little over an hour West of Ottawa. Last Duel Park is a lovely spot to launch the kayak or just have a picnic. You can also paddle in to Perth and have lunch in one of their many lovely cafes…..great day out!
I often paddle in the Ottawa area – kayaking in Gatineau Park is wonderful and has featured in a number of blog posts:
and my bucket list kayak adventure yet to be discovered….Dreamy Travel Destinations.
