Duck Hunting

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Marc and Braden went on a duck hunting adventure yesterday morning.  They got a duck ( I forgot to take a picture of it) .  It had teeth. Very funny, it reminded me of an angry Daffy Duck, actually.

Around 11 o’clock my phone rang. Marc called to hitch a ride home.  “Where”  did I ask “is Braden with the boat?”   “Oh,” Marc answered, “he is rowing around Betsie Bay in search of a way to get into Elberta”.

I must admit that this did not make any kind of sense to  me.  I left the house and drove to the railroad bridge to give Marc a ride to the house. He wanted to pick up the big, red truck to then be able to tow the boat to where it belonged – Braden’s Uncle’s yard.

Suddenly things were crystal clear: They had rowed the Betsie River  to under the railroad bridge when they ran out of water. Marc in the front of the boat weighed the boat down right into the mud.  So Braden “kicked” Marc out and took the boat all the way down to East Shore Marina and then across towards the Cabbage Shed and into Elberta.

Marc and I stood at the bridge watching young Braden row his duck boat into Betsie Lake and over towards the west side of the lake and up to where we were waiting.  It took quite a while but he made it and he still had a smile on his face.

Remedy for a Bad Mood

heehee, we had dogs at the Wayfarer this summer.  Sadly I don’t have pictures of all of them.

Murphy who always comes with Susan

Chance who came with Lynn and Alan

And then there is young Betsie who brought with her Joyce.
You guessed right if you thought that she was named after the Betsie River/Betsie Lake (correct me if this is wrong, Joyce)

And Jinx – she loved it here. It was her first but certainly not last visit 🙂

There were many others but I forgot to take pictures of them.  I was busy…

The Betsie River

After shopping for groceries on Sunday, I pulled off to the side of River Road to take a good look at the River.

Still no signs of spring here. But still pretty

Can you see the fisherman on the left and right?
