Amazing Summer!!

No complaints here about the weather we had over the summer.  It will be hard to beat!

Andrew and I have been fairly busy but are now starting to spend time catching up with life. Quick synopsis of the summer:

  • Paddle Canada’s New Canoe Instructor Courses get underway (story coming soon)
  • Andrew gets knee surgery and recovers enough to paddle in the ACA Nationals – with great results (more later including my “recovery” races – and yes there are medals)
  • Vacationing on Les Iles de la Madeleine
  • Great courses given for MKC, and for the YMCCC
  • Visitors from Canad.be  Belgium
  • Meeting wonderful people along the way!

And now looking forward to good fall paddling on the Moose and Independance next month!
