7 AM

Paddlng 30:00 [1]

Adventuredog and I escorted Mick on his morning swim. Magical dead-calm, misty water under cloudless sky.
1 PM

Paddlng 1:30:00 [3]

Day trip with J-Lu and Adventuredog.

Thing were way too wobbly and imbalanced to deal with whitecaps, so we transferred the pooch to Bash’s boat and we sat backwards, which worked way better with me closer to midships and J-lu way forward. He really liked paddling with just me, rather than 4-to-a-boat.

Friday Aug 2 #

Paddlng 7:34:00 [3] 25.5 km (3.4 kph)

Algonquin Park trip with the Harrison-Grant and Lucente-Smith clans.
We did a car shuttle, then caught the water taxi to the NW of Opeongo. From here it’s a 2200m portage to discourage the riff-raff. With our group’s big luxury loads, Mick and I did the first trip non-stop with boat and big pack. We ran back pretty briskly to take multiple trips so got a decent workout, as did everyone else. It was pretty warm, but mercifully not killer humidity, and the bugs weren’t bad. Negligible compared with RockstAR.

Speaking of which, the kids were rockstars! Trotted happily carrying their paddles, and packs with their teddy bears etc. Logan the Adventuredog was perfect of course.

We paddled Happy Isle lake, then a series of portages totalling almost 5k into Big Trout, for our basecamp for 2 nights. Gorgeous paddling day, and a nice swim from our personal beach.

Hockley prov park with repeats.
Another hot day, but maybe a little less humid.
I felt strong for the first time in 2 weeks.
Finished a bladder of Infinit around the 2hr mark, and had some water too.

I’m taking off the “sick” flag.
