People have various ways was to mark the end of summer. I know there’s the official solstice, but I will call today the end because the loons are long gone and our high temperature fell from the 70s to 49 degrees. It’s raining and sure doesn’t invite one outdoors.

TOOK BONITA FOR HER FIRST KAYAK RIDE. LOVED THE WILD SWEET PEA BLOSSOMS ON THE POINT, THE LOONS AND THEIR BABIES, THE KINGFISHER FISHING AND THE GORGEOUS DRAGONFLIES. WONDERED HOW TO TEACH A DOG TO STAY IN THE CENTER OF A KAYAK.

Took first kayaking trip of summer to end of lake. Sat totally still and drifted quite close to two loons and their tiny offspring.

Arrived back at Michigan home last night, after our twice-a-year 2055 mile trek. Heard a loon this AM while walking Bonita.
