Snorkeling on the Penobscot

Winds ruffled the surface of the Penobscot River causing squares and triangles of refracted light to reflect off the stone and gravel-strewn bottom of the river. From time to time, as we snorkeled beneath the waves, smallmouth bass would swim up to us. Through eyes, located on the sides of their heads, they curiously stared at us giant creatures who possessed a large single eye. Completely unintimidated, the smallest of them hovered around our flippers that stirred up the silt on the river bottom flushing out easy pickings for a meal.
