2006.46.61 - Return to the Island of the Geese

Here we are at Brentwood Bay, a cloudy Sunday, but just right for paddling. Here, Louise, Bernie, Paula and Alison show how much they love to play to the camera. (Tracy loves the camera so much that she's already in the water and long gone.)

We decided to head first to 15 Minute Island.

...and discover that geese are everywhere! I've never seen so many geese in my life! Thousands of them! And they were all yapping! Louise figured they were arguing over Arizona or Florida. A heron flew away -- I figured that he was upset that all the best camping spots were taken. Or maybe he was upset with his new neighbors (but it's okay -- some of his best friends are geese)!

We went around the island.

We paddled past the cement plant.

We found this guy hiding in plain sight on a rock.
