A group of 12 people paddled the Kishwaukee on Sunday from Baumann Park to 1 mile or so past the Hy 39 bridge. Harriet and Doug let the trip and here is Harriet's write up.
The weather was a little sketchy at the beginning, buy the time we shuttled we had glimpses of sunny blue skies. The water level was good, the weather broke into a sunny, breezy day. We were treated to a eagle flying directly overhead carrying his sushi lunch. Turtles, catbirds, & kingfishers were abundant and a goldfinch were all spotted by the group. Harriet & Don got some surfing in. Tom took a dip at lunch & worked his roll at take-out. The Elderberry bushes were in full bloom. After the paddle most went out to enjoy some ac and a cold drink at a local establishment. Thanks to our old & new friends who shared the Kish with us for a great day on the water.
