Row, row, row your boat . . .

I can't get the image out of my head of reporter Sara Kennedy backing a pickup truck, loaded with an enormous canoe jutting out the back. Somehow, she missed a couple of big trees in the Linger Lodge parking lot.

Sara had hoped to put the boat in the water at the quirky restaurant's ramp, but the level of water was too low because of the drought.

So Sara and her daughter Kate drove over to Jiggs Landing and put in there, while a flock of vultures watched their every move from a nearby tree and wall. Spooky.

It was all in a day's reporting for the Herald's multi-part series on the Braden River which begins Sunday, June 14, and runs through Thursday.

It's a really nice piece of work. We hope you enjoy it.
