Good Friday Paddle

For 30 years Guelph paddlers have gathered on Good Friday for a day of canoeing on the local rivers.

Friend, Paul Zago, and I joined a flotilla of over 15 boats  to paddle 14. 5 kms. down the Speed River from Guelph to Hespeler.

The river was high making it an easy ride but with a few challenges. Two canoes capsized but all those made a wet exit were soon in dry clothes and enjoying the gourmet lunch that we all shared.

The day ended with nachos and beer at our favourite pub 'The Wooly"!

SPARK Photo Festival

I was invited to Peterborough this weekend by my old friend, Robert Boudreau, to do a Focus on Nature workshop in conjunction with SPARK, the local photo festival he runs there.

Gail, who took these photos,  joined me and my small group of young photographers for a great day exploring nature along the banks of the Otonabee River with our cameras.
