Mornings on the water don't get much better than this...

This trip was actually a few weeks back but I wanted to share it to get things kicked off here.  This is a small lake close to my house that I have made a couple trips to and find it's very nice having a close to home getaway spot.  Well I'll let the photos do most of the talking.

Here's the view at the take out spot

Making some headway on the water to enjoy the sunrise

That was truly a great sunrise.  These pictures don't do it justice.  Here's a quick view in the canoe and it's off to the campsite

Camp is back in all that cedar

Finally arrived

Time for the camp chores of wood and breakfast prep

Camp shot

Breakfast today is can of spam and 5 eggs...I'd hate to go hungry with all the paddling.

Here's the view while I enjoyed breakfast and a couple shots around camp

Lots of Canadian Geese were nesting close by and here's one passing by

After breakfast I put out the fire and paddled around the lake a bit and picked up a couple largemouth's

This next fish almost qualified as bait.

Well the last couple shots were on the way back in.  That was a great short trip.  Sometimes it's the short trips of just getting out you need the most.
