This morning I set my alarm for 4:45 and was on my way to jennifer's place in Barkway by 5:15, to paddle for 6. Lucky for me she was waiting with a fresh cappucino and we hit the water by 6:30. She has access to Bass lake. It's a small lake and in order for me to count it towards my goal we had to paddle to the far end of it and hug the shore line out to the Kashe river. It was very foggy and a pretty sight near the beaver dam where the Canada geese were hanging out.
We paddled around Kashe and probably only covered about a 1/4 or 1/3 of it. Kashe is a great lake for paddling with its many bays but a little tricky without a map, which I had forgotten. So we played it save and paddled hard back to the river so as not to get back too late seeing as we both had many more things to get done today.
Due to my lack of computer skills, I still seem to have trouble posting pictures here so I will once again post them on facebook.
A tough road ride with Jennifer. She's a bit stronger than me so I had to push hard to keep up . Plus it was windy, again.
Biked out Doe lake road and met up with Jennifer near Houseys Rapids road. We continued on Doe lake; to Uffington road; Uffington onto 118 and Gravenhurst Parkway home.
Quite the ride! Av 24.3 Max 47.8
Lake # 9 Long lake
With Emily. We were on our way to paddle the Mushquash river when we passed Long lake and wondered how one gets on that lake. The weather was changing to cloudy and windy, not the hot and sunny that it was at 8:30, so we decided to try Long lake.
We explored the entire shoreline all around because it was not a large lake and battled the waves and whitecaps when we turned north. Good thing we hugged the shore because it was quite iffy there for a while.
