Canoe On Wheels


I got the canoe out last night so I could go fishing this morning. The rain put a stop to that one. This evening I took just the canoe and the dogs down for some paddling. Not too far and not too hard, but it felt good to get back on the water. The wheels make it a lot easier to move the canoe to the creek. They’re simple to bungee on and off. One dog napped and the other swam. Not a bad way to spend an evening.

Morning Walk – post-rain


It started raining right at 8:00 this morning. I measured 0.7 inches with the gauge on the roof of the front porch. It was a short hard rain, but we needed some precipitation. It hadn’t rained since July 11th. That’s ten days ago.

The dogs and I got wet from the tree drips, but it had stopped raining by the time we got in our morning walk. The creek isn’t up yet, and it shouldn’t come up much from the rain we got here. It’s what fell upstream that determines whether I can go fishing tonight or not 🙂

It was an interesting week. I hope you enjoy the pictures.

McFaddens at the Creek


My daughter and granddaughter camped out here for the last few days. They only ditched the tent for beds last night. Here’s a few pictures of their fun.
