An Evening Around La Framboise...

Tonight I was just dinking about in the river, listening to the city band concert, when Dave Pfahler shows up with his boat. So I decided to tag along on his paddle around La Framboise Island. Got a little kayak talk in and I also got some great sunset shots.

My paddling, including the dinking around, was 7.5 miles.Dave built his boat with Rick Johns (SDCA) of Vermillion.

I think these sunset pictures (with and without Dave's boat) look fantastic.
