Daily Photo: Spring Serenade Photo: Tammy Kelly

Adventure Kayak reader Tammy Kelly shared this photo of Jamie Smith enjoying an early spring paddle with this note: "After a long relentless winter, on April 3, 2015 we could finally see the ice part and the water flowing once again. With the banks still frozen the only place to launch was under the Highway 115 bridge in Peterborough, Ontario. 

"Anxious to get an early start to the season, we headed out for a beautiful day on the water. We spent the next 5.5 hours on the Otonabee River. On this great adventure we saw otters, blue herons and mini icebergs floating past.  We could not have asked for a better day for the first time paddle of the season."
