|A duck crossed in front of the kayak in a peculiar way- it could barely keep its head out of the water.|
|I followed it to land and then understood why - it had a broken right leg and it struggled to walk to get to its family.|
|Then, several times today I saw the same Great Egret because when it flew, its right leg dragged in the water. It too had a leg problem.|
|There was a lot of boat traffic today and one skier was doing all sorts of awesome flips and twists. I didn't mind the boat wake for this type of performance going on in front of me.|
|This water skier was catching some serious air.|
|Cardinal Flowers are still in bloom.|
