Day 21

The weekend was too nice to spend it inside a gym, so I tossed the kid in the canoe and we headed up Indian Arm from Belcarra. This pic is Jug Island, just around the corner, and it was a wild ride. The big power boats were out and some of the wakes were huge. Combine that with passing by some small coves where the waves rebounded into a washing machine-like roller coaster and it was crazy fun.

On the way back the tide was coming in, so we barely made progress at one point where it narrowed. The flow was fast and fairly turbulent, so I had to put it into turbo mode to just move forward a few inches. Erik is awesome in the canoe, between telling me pirate stories and singing songs, he’s great self-entertaining ballast and I’m crazy happy that he loves to come with me.
