Wee Lake our own private oasis, a quiet place
shared by the neighbors
only a stone's throw from our house.
A leisurely paddle towards the centre of the lake
leaving ripples on the water.
Husbands latest boy toy a Sporstpal canoe.
Paddled out to the deep end of the lake with
daughter and wee grandson for his
first time ever canoe ride and fishing lesson!
(Next image taken from behind the trees in background)
Ausable River which flows into Lake Huron
located behind the trees along Wee Lake.
To fully appreciate the raw beauty of the river,
one must venture into the rugged interior by canoe.
ME on a canoe!!!
After capsizing on the Russian River in California..
"Always do what you are afraid to do"
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Sportspal Canoes are made from Aircraft Grade aluminum
which is then stretch-formed, heat treated and hardened.
Lined with ethafoam (closed cell polyethylene) so they
won't sink even if fully loaded with water.
Husband assures me that this canoe does NOT tip.
Unusual stability and safety make these canoes excellent
for family and scardey cats like me.
Lake Huron ahead !
Time to turn this canoe around Natureboy!!
