Ontario and Quebec 2017: Day 22 - Fishing and Sunsets


Another very easy start to the day! It says a lot when you wake up and then manage to roll back over to sleep for another few hours!

We breakfasted as usual and while the others went back to their respective beds, I knocked up some chocolate muffins!



As the forecast had predicted, it was overcast and we had some rain late morning.

This didn't stop the boys pedaloing across the lake nor F from catching some fish from the deck!



After lunch we headed to our fishing island! O was in the single kayak and the three of us in the Canadian kayak!



There was some fishing done by all - with some success by everyone bar me! I did manage to cast quite well but the nets seemed to have a better track record!



There was some jumping in as well - though I stayed clear if the splash zone this time



O wanted to head back so J supervised him until he docked back at the cottage!



The weather suddenly turned - dark clouds and choppy waters. We got into the canoe and F and J did a sterling job of getting us back quickly! I have to say it was not the most enjoyable 15 minutes I have spent on a boat!



After dinner we headed out to the ice cream shop. We dropped J off at Canadian Tire (how he loves that shop )

O had a chocolate brownie sundae and F and I stuck to our regulars - though I ordered a smaller one than last time and I swear it was bigger - thankfully J came in and helped me finish it off!



We arrived back at the cottage to the most amazing sunset! I managed to take so many photos so here are a sample

I got some things ready for the boat hire tomorrow - hopefully the weather will be nice and the boat hire place got our message on their answerphone! I don't think they have been busy from what they said so hopefully it will all work out!

Oh, that water looked a bit scary on the way back, thank goodness for fast paddling !
Sunset looks fabulous, almost like the sky is on fire. Quite stunning.
Good luck with the boat tomorrow!

I'd have been terrified on the trip back from the island - looks very choppy indeed. But great fun while you were there. The chocolate muffins look delicious as does the ice cream later in the day. Fantastic sunset shots, absolutely stunning.

Thankfully J is an experienced paddler (he grew up at the beach and canoed in the sea all the time) so we were in safe hands! But it was still scary - I was glad O was already back as he would have been on his own in the smaller canoe!

The sunset was amazing!

We are eating well considering I am doing most of the catering!

The sunset photos are my favourite - I took rather a lot

Thanks Joan - the new camera does help as I can zoom in a lot unlike with my iphone where the zoom makes the photos lose clarity!
