Kayaking 1:00:00 [3]

North side of Manitoulin Island.
Launched at Cook's Dock which is a Government of Canada small craft dock. There was a commercial fishing boat tied up there and a couple trucks and trailers of folks with motorized fishing boats. Nothing else. Just blue water all around.
Paddled along the shore to the north and west......very similar terrain to the east side of the Bruce Peninsula near Cape Crocker (well, it is the same land formation after all!)
Then I wet a line, multiple times, but the fish weren't buying what I was selling. One of the motorized fishing boats came in and they had been out in the North Channel proper, fishing for salmon. They aren't having fresh caught fish for supper either.
But as the expression goes, a bad day fishing is better than a good day at work.

Biking (Rail trail/gravel) 50:00 [3] 19.0 km (22.8 kph)

Biked half way to work...from Staples to Tilbury.
Met a customer en route as he was picking up his I fine tuned his delivery day for a truck load of fertilizer, adjusted upward the quantity of cover crop seed he needs and confirmed the timing of spreading some fall fertilizer. All well before 7 am. I hope he was not traumatized by my biking shorts.
Regardless, it was a beautiful morning to ride to work. A fawn was quite bemused by me, just stood there and watched me go by.

Trekking 1:00:00 [2]
shoes: Speed Cross

Couple all-too-brief Bruce Trail excursions

Paul is not much of a hiker but was game to see what I promoted as 2 cool sights on the BT that didn't require much walking:
1) restored lime kiln west of Duntroon
2) Keyhole side trail south of Devil's Glen

He thought they were good choices, particularly the geology of the Keyhole area.
My Garmin 35 had an un-provoked work stoppage yesterday, and wouldn't take a charge. I thought I followed the directions for a soft-start, but still managed to wipe out everything since the last sync. Or I think that is all I wiped out.....
