Today, after we biked our daughter to a sleepover we decided that we were going to head out and enjoy the lovely sunshine and perfect temperatures. We use a Wike Woody Wanoe to pull our canoe around town. If we go canoeing farther a stream we will place it on top of our car. We have a local area annual season’s pass and that allows us to go canoeing all over our local area for free.
We love to go canoeing and live literally a 5 minute bike ride from two major rivers. They actually join near a covered bridge right by our house. So we have loads of options right here in the centre of our city.
The view from the bridge, the Speed is on the lower left, the Eramosa on the upper left and on the right they are the new and enlarged Speed River.
Today we decided to put in (the river) farther down stream than normal. We hoped to go quite a ways downriver but learned very quickly that there is a drop and so after a short 20 minutes we pulled out and headed back upstream to our normal launch spot.
