Nice pics, Myron. Beautiful dogs, too God rest their souls.

I've been kayaking for years, and  since he came to me 4 years ago Scout the ThundahBeagle comes with me. Usually I hook his leash around some part of the seat frame of the kayak, running the end of the leash through the hand loop, and then clip to his harness. He stands on the bow and alternately jumps in.

But I've been thinking more and more about getting a canoe, as it seems it would provide more room for Scout.

I thought I posted this on here, but someone posted it on Facebook and my freaking face dropped, especially when the one guy threw his paddle up in the air to cheer, OMG the eyes started to flow..

Thanks you guys!   Isn't it amazing how dogs and canoe trips just sort of seep into the corners of your life?   I can't believe how many trips I've taken with these great beasts. 

Happy Thanksgiving weekend to everyone observing it!

I knew I saw that somewhere, those Rx really screw with ya! Or maybe it’s just old age?

Thanks for posting your pics Myron!  I grew up with a Sports Pal canoe and I am still always on the lookout for one at a decent price.  They were made in North Bay, Ontario and are super light aluminum, and come with paddles that also function as oars when you are alone or if the person you are with is too frustrating to paddle with!   :ahhh

I'm sorry to hear about the dogs, but it sounds like they had good, long, full lives, and they certainly seem happy to be in the canoes with you!  Unfortunately my Daisy is a bit big at 140lbs to take in my kayaks, and at almost 11 years old with a bum leg, I don't think this is the time to introduce her to a canoe.  I keep saying that my next dog will be something like a French Bulldog or Jack Russel that I can take in the kayak (or potential future canoe) with me, because I hate going in the woods and not taking my dog(s).  It seems like I am cheating them of something they love too.

It also sounds like maybe you have been in and around some of my regular spots, if you come into Ontario from Michigan.  My family is mostly in the area between Sault Ste Marie and Sudbury, and my parents live in Blind River, not far from Elliot Lake.  That is, in my opinion, some of the absolute most beautiful hiking and paddling areas in the world!  Next time you are heading that way, let me know and I'll do my best to meet up with you for an adventure!

Sounds great!  The last few years we've been mostly visiting Lake Superior Provincial Park, so a little west of you I guess.  But I've been hankering to explore more areas that I haven't visited before.  I will definitely lean on you for advice!

Superior is one heck of a big lake!  I usually only go on (or in!) Huron, but I'm game for any paddling anywhere.

So there I was walking the dog around our local loch this morning and it's beautifully flat water with and just the right kind of warm air.  Not too hot, not too cold.  Perfect.  I see someone out in their kayak speeding along and think to myself "boy oh boy, that looks like it might be fun".  Of course I then remember that I own a boat or two but what with global pandemics and whatnot I've not had them out this year. :doh:  The PBK wood and skin kayak is too much of a faff for one person to move around but that's what the wee Sevylor is perfect for. 

Got home, fed the dog and threw a few bits and pieces in the back of the car and headed back to the loch.  Of course by this time the cloud has come over and has been brought by some wind.  Not a super strong wind mind you, but enough that the high sided Sevylor really notices.  I went out anyway and manfully paddled into a headwind thinking "at least I can enjoy a good push on the way back down".  You know what's coming right?  (No, I didn't capsize) I get to the top of the loch and the wind I'd been fighting for 40 minutes dies back.  Not to nothing, but all the chop is gone and it's not going to help me one iota.  Giving my arms a bit of a rest I very gently paddle back to the jetty and pull the boat out.  Then I get a tail wind again. Still a nice way to spend an hour or so though.






Try not to be the person who blunders around and causes everyone else to get out the way.  Everyone else thinks you're a utter...

Always nice to get out on the water.. Was out earlier today with three colleagues, mirror like water when we headed out but a light breeze and small waves on the way home.. Here is one from half time snack and rest

Gorgeous trips guys!  One of these days I hope to paddle with each of you in some of your favorite spots!

I've had a few paddling adventures this summer, but not nearly as many as I should have.  I will (eventually) get them posted for all to see!

I have been showing your pics to my brother to try and convince him to come with me on a Scandinavian paddling trip, so keep posting them!   :pok:
