We canoed to a private beach in the Niagara River on Saturday. This is my favorite canoe trip, because it's through lagoon, marsh, and roaring river. And it's an incredible destination--- a tiny boat access only island with a handful of sandy beaches.

Some marshy flowers in the lagoon of Strawberry Island:

Our canoe on a beach in the lagoon. There's another photo of the same beach, lower water.

eggs on the island. Cormarant?

Beach on the river proper, on the outside of the island. Lovely beach!

Other side.

Water lily. I'm planning on stitching that.

They are one of the top invasive plants in america. Purple loosestrife Lythrum salicaria . Its wiping out native wetland species.


Ad sorry to be the bearer of even more bad news but the white fragrant water lilly ,Nymphaea odorata, is also invasive.

Burning. :D

Always making sure your shoes are clean when you come in and leave.

Uproot them and leave them there.

Of course the first and last are illegal.

since we have to walk in water to pull the canoe in or out, does that count?

And uprooting and leaving--- is a little at a time ok, or not good enough to bother?

I can do that one.

Hell, I'll be happy to...

There are supposed to be strawberries on the island. I want to see those...
