Spanish River/North Channel Kayak Trip

Highlights of the trip:

Someone forgot the water filter. Possible giardia may result. Will know in a week or so.
Editor's note: It wasn't Terry that forgot it.

Compared to our last expedition when we circumnavigated Manitoulin Island and froze our butts off, we were warm - in fact, a little over-toasted, for this trip.
The Spanish River was rotten with Bald Eagles. Saw five in one day.

Despite 20 years of wilderness camping and burying it without incident, Terry may have accidentally stepped in her own... with her brand new awesome kayak shoes. Which, upon further inspection, apparently have soles with lots of crevices. Don't judge.
Click on photos to enlarge. You'll be able to see the Cormorants closely!
Now on to some sad news. My inbox was indeed full, but not in a good way. The book publisher that had mailed me a contract for my middle grade novel, Dogsled Dreams, has been diagnosed with something. She is shutting down her website and cancelling all current projects, including mine. Wouldn't a writer's life be boring without the emotional ride of trying to get published?

Everything happens for a reason... even if we don't know what it is. um... can you ask Denis if he can start making lists... with old age comes memory loss

I absolutely envy your life :)

Kayaking! How exciting! When we get back to Canada, we want to try the canoeing from Barrie down to Toronto...apparently people say it takes about 4 hrs...for the first time, it should be exciting :)

Bummer to hear about the contract! I hope your trip relaxed you enough to handle the news.

You are so adventurous! I am sorry about the contract, there is a reason for everything, must be something better for it on down the road.
