I like to canoe…

On Sunday, it was such a nice day that the whole family decided to do something special outdoors. So we all got in the van and drove to the North end of Gatineau Park, more precisely to Lac Philippe, and rented a canoe for an hour. I like canoeing. I have been canoeing since I was about six years old, and I still enjoy it. I like the quietness on a lake only broken by the song of the paddle.

We even got a bonus on the way to the lake in the form of a deer calmly eating on the side of the road. We managed to park right across it and took a couple of pictures. It must be used to cars as it only gave us a cursory glance.

I have placed some pictures in flickr (and there’s even one of me).

On the plus side, I think I have managed to convinced SWMBO that buying a canoe is not a bad idea… Better get to it before she changes her mind!
