Converting a canoeist... and eagles.

Sorry that I haven't posted much lately. Beginning in August, I have been doing my field training for work and have been putting in 50-60 hours a week. The OT is nice, but my kayaking time is severely hampered. On Saturday, Chuck and took out a coworker of his that also happens to play ultimate frisbee with me on Wednesdays, Andy. Andy is an experienced canoeist and has done the Boundary Waters with his dad.
Nothing too fancy, we did our bread and butter route around La Framboise Island. We did see quite a few immature bald eagles along the channel/chute alongside the island.
