This afternoon, Elizabeth and I cancelled 3 other plans to enjoy the unusually warm and sunny November afternoon in kayaks. We borrowed a couple boats from the Windhappers kayak club and paddled around in the canals nearby...

We continued south along the Wennetjessloot canal. Here we encountered a new housing development, in which each house had its own tiny peninsula surrounded by mini canals. Later on, a cannon pointed threateningly from the edge of the canal. We also found ourselves talking with adorable sheep in a narrow canal between two greenhouses. One of the sheep looked more like a dog. As we paddled away they said "baaaahhhyyeee!"
A massive turkey was observed amongst throngs of ducks and geese, a blind pig, and a grouchy goat. We considered stealing the turkey for Thursday's meal, but then the homeowner came outside holding a threatening tank of poison (ok, I think he was spraying the weeds). Two hours later, we were back at the clubhouse refreshed and happy to have left the house on this lazy Sunday.
