Canoeing from Lacy Point - Lake Waco

Sunday, July 01, 2012

We went canoeing today. We haven't canoed in 15 years so it was a relearning experience.

Here is our canoe.

We saw lots of egrets in the dead trees.

We stayed closed to the bank and I was surprised that we didn't see any turtles sunning themselves on the logs.

Our only catch of the day was an alligator gar.

Look at the teeth he has. I wouldn't swim in Lake Waco.

    You know you really should put together a pictorial travelogue of your Texas tours. I find it fascinating to see all the places you go and the beautiful scenery you get to look at as you walk, hike, and now canoe our wonderful state!
