Thought I would make my real introduction here as I am a newmember to this forum. I think it best done with photos.
My wife and I just got the last of 5 kids raised and out thedoor. We now have the time and a few more resources to spend on ourselves. Wepurchased a used Wenonah canoe about a year ago and have since been exploringSkiatook Lake here in Oklahoma. We live about 2 minutes from where we put in.
I am a police detective and find that I get a little toomuch of the human element and have a strong desire to disappear from society onan increasingly regular basis. Enter the canoe. My wife and I now spend somegreat time together without the noise and irritation of the human.
We will load that canoe up and take off for 3 or 4 days at atime. I suspect one day we may not come back as we love it so much. Paddlinglends itself well to photography and with the addition of the digital camera Ican take huge numbers of photos. We devote entire walls of our house to themalong with items we may find on our trips such as an interesting rock orfishing lure we found, just something to remind us.
I am posting a few photos from our last trip (Nov. 29 thruDec. 1 2013). My wife’s first winter camp out, she wasn’t too sure about it butthe weather was perfect with highs in the 50s and lows in the 30s. These photos were taken on the last day when the wind was dead calm and a fog rolled in.
