My friend M and I took my canoe out on Beaver Lake. We paddled across and halfway around the lake, then pulled into a beautiful little backwater for a picnic. We lounged in the canoe surrounded by water pickeral, many little fish, dragonflies, and lots of birds. Munched on spectacular avocado and hummus sandwiches on Ezekial bread, olives, luscious strawberries, and fig and olive crackers. Cattails like spindles of wool.
