I took the photo of my friend Ron Hackett, photographing life on the river from the observation deck of Dawn on the Amazon. All of the rest of the photos in this article are Ron’s. I know you will enjoy his work.

Thank you Bill for posting some of the images we were able to capture that day on the river. It was a very relaxing and enjoyable day, one that I won’t soon forget. Photo-Ops were in abundance, our lunch prepared by Magaly was delicious, the expert Pilotage provided by Edson was second to none, and with you as our guide we knew we were in for a day to remember. And the River did not disappoint. The sights and sounds, the creatures, and of course the people we encountered through out the day all combined to make lasting memories of Amazonia. (But we have a ton of photos just in case)
Thank you for a very enjoyable day. I’ll be back.

Hello Ron, Thanks for the nice compliment. I’ll be sure to pass it along to Magaly and Edson. I assume you made it back to Canada in one piece. Nice to hear from you. Say hi to everyone for me.
Bill
