Canoe Trip

Aleks, Papa, and Grandpa Jim went on a Sunday afternoon canoe trip. Jim scouted a lake he'd never canoed before early in the day, then they packed the canoe in the pickup truck and enjoyed the (briefly lived) cool but sunny fall weather. Aleks with Papa's oar. The red canoe on the dock.
Aleks gazes over the lake. There were lots of fish swimming about. Papa struck one with his oar accidentally, making it jump above the water. Hopefully it didn't sustain a concussion. Despite being a vegetarian and never having tasted fish in his life, Aleks stuck his arm in trying to catch fish with his bare hand. He would really like to fish with sticks and strings some day.
