paddling 1:00:00 [3]

Lake # 19 Sunny lake

A long narrow lake off Doe lake road. The beginning of the lake is cluttered with cottages and the next 3/4 is located on the Jevins and Silver lakes conservation area and is completely isolated except for one property at the very end. Apparently you can hike up the cliffs on the south east shore and get a great view of Three Mile lake, although we didn't find that out till we visited the paddleshack afterwards.

The irony of our paddle, which I did with Emily btw, is that it rained for most of the hour on Sunny lake :)


So there doesn't appear to be too much (or any) variety in my activities but our new horse is taking up a couple of hours a day. Between that and the paddling, my days seem to be filled. But I'm on target for my goal :)

Lake # 18 Mary Lake

Headed over to one of my favourite places, Port Sydney and paddled Mary Lake. Compared to some of the smaller lakes I've been paddling, this one was pretty open and choppy as a result. Lots of boat and seadoo traffick so I kept my life jacket on just to be safe.

When I was heading back to the boat launch a young kid was trying to paddle his seadoo back to shore with a Very small paddle. So I towed him back. That was quite a workout! And he barely muttered a thankyou when we reached the docks. (plus he probably could have gotten off the thing and swam behind it to help) Oh well, felt pretty good to power up. :)
