Washing Bears

The other day, just as I was putting my canoe into the water, a couple stopped and asked me what I did out in my boat. I gave them a dumb look, not because it was a dumb question, but because I didn't have an answer. I guess I get some exercise, but I know that I observe stuff. Lots of stuff and most of it is stuff that people can't see without being on the water. You learn things when you pay attention and it is usually not what you think you are learning. It was cool and cloudy today. The sky was a steely gray and the breeze put ripples on the water that turned the surface into that same steely gray. It was definitely a November day. I spotted these three raccoons on a small island as they foraged for food. They watched me as I foraged for stuff.
