“Spend as much time as possible on mountains, in small boats, or otherwise out in the weather; if you never get wet, cold, exhausted or scared, you won’t properly appreciate being dry, warm, rested and safe.” ~ Peter Jay

"I’m an adventuring river rat at heart. Put me on a floating piece of driftwood and I’m happy." ~ Christina Glauner

Sunday and Monday

On Sunday I went out paddling. Nothing new in terms of location; I just did a circumnavigation of La Framboise Island. I did put a little twist to it and paddled down stream along the west river bank instead of along the island. Sorry no google earth map; the batteries died in my gps during the trip. Here is a slide show of the pictures I took though.

On Monday I just went for a quick paddle around Dump Island. The evening was windless. I have a couple of coworkers that like to go wakeboarding; they have a description for the river on days like yesterday: "like glass" or "like butter". The river was smooth is usually what I say. Some pictures:

  1. Tremendous photos, Pat. You'll have to send me one or two to run with your piece on Pierre paddling.

    Those cloud reflections in the water are amazing! Keep up the good work.
