First river outing

Time to get out on the river!

With the warm weather this weekend, it’s finally time to get back onto the river. I pulled out the kayak and headed downriver to the mouth of Hewes Brook. On a tiny island, inches above the level of the river, I found a Canada Goose guarding her nest.

Shortly downriver, another goose hesitated until I was near, then launched out of the water and into the air.

On that island, a bit bigger, is a beaver lodge dating back several years.

Is it still occupied? I’ll check again another day.

Los Cabos

A week in Mexico to attend MobiCom, and to snorkel the warm waters around Los Cabos.

I spent a week in Los Cabos, Mexico, to attend the annual MobiCom conference.  Although the conference itself was excellent – great science, interesting colleagues, and celebrations of this conference’s 25th anniversary – I had a chance to explore some of the outdoor opportunities in the area.  Read on, and check out the photo gallery.2019-10-24-75256.jpg Continue reading “Los Cabos”
