trail Run (HVtrail) 1:05:00 [3] 10.0 km (6:30 / km)

Got the Girl off to the airport for her flight to Yellowknife after a whirlwind of family visiting and packing to survive the winter up there.
It was a hot humid day but bearable by 5:00 on the trail in the shade. Ran up to the new Duffy's bridge and back on the paved trail for a bit. Then I bushwhacked along the ravine parallel to Glasgow before emerging near the soccer fields up on top. It was nice to traipse through the woods. Bit of a tribute to Pops:)

push ups, planks, ab and back ex, 1-foot balances, stretching

3 PM

swim 35:00 [3] 1.5 km (23:20 / km)

After a lot of sitting, visiting, laughing, crying, and eating all day yesterday at Pops' funeral/celebration of life I felt the need to get outside and move. After the interment of the ashes this morning, he family all went up to Uncle Michael's cottage on Cedar Point = more sitting (driving), eating etc. Finally Goose and I and a cousin did a good swim down the shore and back in gorgeous clear Georgian Bay water. I love swimming there:)
4 PM

kayak (Cedar Point) 40:00 [3] 4.0 km (10:00 / km)

Took the sit-upon up the shoreline to the Christian Island ferry dock and back. It's not a sleek performance craft but I got a bit of a workout on a nice afternoon.

Pops' funeral/celebration of life was today and went very well. He'd have loved it. Lots of emotion, lots of laughs as well as tears, lots of music, lots of friends, lots of love. (But not a lot of physical activity.)

cycling (road/rail trail) 2:10:00 [3] 51.0 km (2:33 / km)

Clear, cool morning. I wore a jacket - and needed it! It was beautiful though.
Rode Duffy's, Old Church, HumberStation, Patterson, rail trail to Tottenham, stopped for a latte then rode rail trail, Mt. Hope home. Nice way to start the day. A lot of family and friends arrived later for Pops' funeral tomorrow. Fun.

Beautiful breezy, blue-sky summer day. Drove up to visit Sainte Marie Among the Hurons with Goose's cousin from England, and the Girl. It was interesting. Then we did an easy 7km bike ride into Midland on the Tay trail, had a latte, visited a friend> Rode back with a stop for a swim on the way back. Such a nice day:)

1 PM

cycling (road) 30:00 [3] 14.0 km (2:09 / km)

Dropped the car downriver, then road our bikes back to the Nicolston bridge. Carried them over the very loose jumble of rocks, locked them up underneath, and launched the canoe. Turns out we saved a whopping $5 by not launching at the campground. We'll know for next time. The ride was pretty much a straight line back to the bridge with a few hills and we made good time.
2 PM

canoeing (Nottawasaga) 3:30:00 [3] 23.0 km (9:08 / km)

Talked Goose into going for a paddle and got more than I bargained for! He wanted to go from Nicolston Dam (Alliston) toward Angus (the town). We tried to unload the boat near the dam but apparently it's private property and we got told off. So we moved to the bridge, stashed the boats and drove downriver. Left the car there, rode our bikes back to the bridge and then paddled to the car. Which took a long time. The Nottawasaga is pretty slow in this section with lots of shallow rocky sets to navigate. It was nice though. Hardly saw anyone else, couple of kayakers and fishers. Lots of Kingfishers, herons, some egrets, muskrat and several big, big snappers sliding into the water from the muddy banks. I was starting to wonder if we'd be paddling in the dark and I'd run out of water when we rounded a bend a saw the railroad bridge we were aiming for. Took-out at the bridge and portaged about a km up an old road back to the car. Longest portage I've done this summer. Only portage I've done I think:) And I somehow lost another pair of sunglasses:(
