The last full day of my Canadian tour 2018 was beautifully sunny and we strapped the canoe on Karen’s car and headed out to paddle the mighty Saugeen river. Adventure hats
Adventure pup Heidi was not invited for this particular adventure, as while she excels at hiking, she is sometimes a less helpful paddler. And we were off! The river was moving fast, and we cruised down the river, gliding effortlessly over places that cause lots of anxiety and canoe scratches when the water is a little bit lower. We stopped for lunch at this Huck Fin-inspired lunch spot. We saw a bald eagle in her nest, and watched she flew to a different vantage point. My iphone couldn’t do justice to how majestic this moment was! Since the river was flowing fast, we did not have to work that hard to cover the 25k back to the car. This is what bliss looks like! I couldn’t have asked for a better visit!
