Happy Thanksgiving to all my fellow Canadians, at home and abroad. We celebrated yesterday at my brother’s house with the best turkey and stuffing ever. His wife is the family authority on turkey dinners. I baked a chocolate pecan pie (oh my goodness) and Mum made a sweet potato casserole (yum).
You may recall that I went camping last week. Here are a few pictures of our Keji expedition to Cobrielle Lake.
The start of our trip.
The end of the first portage.
We met some researchers who were catching yellow perch, primary food source for loons, to analyze for health.
The start of the third portage, a muddy, bumpy trek. Oy!
A well-earned treat after a long, hard day of paddling and portaging.
Breakfast the next morning - eggs and cinnamon-laced porridge.
Whiling away a pleasant afternoon at our campsite playing backgammon.
A gorgeous full moon (this picture does not do it justice).
Returning to civilization.
Yes, it was tiring. No, I did not sleep well. Yes, my legs are bruised from getting whacked by the kayak whilst portaging. And both thumbs are blistered despite wearing paddling gloves. But yes, I would do it again. We’re already planning our first trip for next spring.
