Sudbury River - Rt. 62 to Fairhaven Bay & Return

Mrs. Trashpaddler joined me this morning for a trip to Fairhaven Bay in our new two-seater.  It was the maiden voyage for this boat and it proved very adept at providing us close encounters with wildlife.
At Clamshell Bank this Great Blue Heron hardly took notice of our passing...
 Similarly, this Musquash was more concerned with getting his breakfast home than our presence...
 At Conantum this White-tailed Deer paid us little heed as well...
We watched it feeding for several minutes before it casually sauntered off.

On our return trip we encountered several canoes and kayaks in addition to the fishermen we'd seen on the way upriver.

As trash patrols go, today was a bust and that was nice for a change.
