Say it out loud, please?
Isn't that so much fun to say?
It's even more fun to paddle on. We took our new kayaks out to the Eugene Canoe Canal...a several mile inland waterway that I guess feeds off the Willamette River, in Alton Baker Park. You start by Autzen Stadium and paddle along a bit til you come to a big 'ol Lake (for an inland waterway)...then you paddle across the lake and then end up paddling by the back yards of these gorgeous houses, and then down to a little dam by the highway where you have to turn around and paddle back.
And it's upstream on the way and downstream on the way back. How thoughtful!
i would guess that it is maybe 4 or 5 miles round trip. Not a bad way to test out our new Kestrel kayak, which I paddled and I did very well if I do say for myself. Tim's Tampico handled equally well. We saw lots of birds, ducks and ducklings, and geese and goslings. And dogs. A great way to spend a couple of hours!
