We arrived at our friends ranch near Camrose, Alberta yesterday in time for a boat ride down the Battle River, which of course included happy hour:-)
The Battle River, which is 570 km (374 mi) long, runs from Battle Lake in central Alberta to the North Saskatchewan River in Battleford, Saskatchewan.
We travelled on the part of the river that runs through our friends ranch.
While enjoying our time in the sun with a few drinks and appies we were treated to great conversation and close-up encounters with ducks.
These guys escorted us under the bridge.
As we motored along a herd of cattle kept a watchful eye on us.
And we watched a blue heron take flight.
And then we came to a shallow section in the river and had to turn around.
On our return trip the cattle continued to keep a watchful eye on us.
Two hours later our cruise came to end, what a great way to spend an afternoon!
Until next time …
