[Photos with Bob's Canon EOS 7D Mark II camera, with Canon EFS 18-135 zoom lens unless otherwise noted.]

NOTE: The photos below are in chronological order.

The first fish (Baby Northern Pike) caught on our trip, from the dock, in the waning daylight hours of our arrival day, Saturday, August 1. Note that it was 'snagged', not caught in the conventional sense. So there is an asterisk on this first fish 'caught.'

 

The first morning out, the first boat out, waiting for the other boat (sister Shirley, her husband Jerry, and daughter Tane), as we prepare to travel 'in caravan'. [Photo by Sharon on her iPhone 5s.]

 

We left Sharon's Uncle Terry's house before sunup, arriving at Crex Meadows, near Grantsburg, Wisconsin just at sunrise. Monday, August 10. [Sharon's iPhone 5s]

 

Cloud backlit by setting sun, over freeway cloverleaf, returning from a day on the American side of Niagara Falls to our RV Park on the Canadian side. Saturday August 15.

 

Canada loves these oversized Adirondack Chairs. We saw them all over Canada. My two pals and I are enjoying this one at our Nova Scotia, Arms of Gold RV park, just before we set off for the ferry that would take us from Nova Scotia to Newfoundland. Saturday August 22. [Sharon's iPhone 5s]
