Was planning to paddle Lake of Bays today but couldn't due to my injured shoulder.

road biking 1:43:29 [4] 45.85 mi (2:15 / mi)

Cycle girl was visiting her parents in Baysville so she joined me on the group ride from The Bike Shop. Great ride except a nasty crash for me a few kilometers from the end. Cracked helmet, all kinds of bumps, bruises scrapes and cuts and some soft tissue damage to my shoulder.

But my bike's O.K. and I surprisingly didn't wreck my new shirt or shorts, eventhough the skin was scraped underneath. :)

paddling 5:50:00 [3]

Lake #s 29, 30 & 31 Go Home Lake, Flatrock Lake and Irvine Lake

Larry was good enough to forsake running and biking to get me back on my paddling goal. First stop: Don's Bakery in Bala for some coffee and very yummy cinnamon buns.

Larry has policed this lake many times so he was a great tour guide The west side of the lake is crown land and quite rugged with all the canadian shield rock. A few choice campsites to choose from. Almost all the cottages are boat access so the marina is quite busy. Funny thing about this lake is that the speed limit is 40km/h in the narrows AND the boats do NOT slow down for paddlers at all! Crazy!

At the end of this lake is a pretty set of falls where we portaged into Flatrock lake. Pretty remote paddle to the next set of falls called Lady Gray falls which was quite spectacular. Larry played around in the whitewater while I got out and took pictures. From here you could portage into Gray lake but we turned around and paddled back to another falls called Flatrock falls . Here we had our picnic lunch and stretched our legs (and neck and shoulders) for a bit.

After lunch we phoned and made arrangements for David to pick Danielle up from work so we could tackle another lake. Across the top of Go Home lake into Mannings Bay where a waterski course is set up in the middle of this remote quiet bay. We searched for a creek that led us to a tiny trickle of a falls that was dammed up top by beavers. We climbed up the trail with the kayaks and put into Irvine Lake where there wasn't a single soul to be found. I wanted to go for a swim but Larry warned about Beaver Fever so we saved the swim for the way back.

The way back was windy and we were tired but what a great way to spend the day! Oh ya, I did have a quick swim which felt sooo good.
