A grand adventure

It rained every day. I was tired, verging on exhaustion. My body hurt and I didn’t sleep well. My clothes were dirty and I really needed a shower by the fifth day.

It was a great holiday.

The scenery was overwhelmingly beautiful. We ate like kings, enjoyed a whisky or martini before supper and a glass of wine with our rehydrated food.

It was a great canoe trip.

Last June, my wife Lee Ann and I, along with long-time friends Doug and Lisa paddled the Bowron Lakes canoe circuit in the interior of British Columbia. This 116.4 km. route has been called one of the world’s best canoe trips.

Lee Ann and I have prepared a slide show and will speak about our adventures Wednesday, Feb. 6.

And you’re all invited to see the show at the monthly meeting of the Bow Waters Canoe Club. There will be a short business meeting before the presentation.

Turn right in to an unmarked lane, drive down the hill to a parking area. Walk down the steel stairs to the club house, which is on the banks of the irrigation canal.
