A quick canoe ride down the Grand River ...

Post by R.J. » Sun Aug 17, 2008 12:13 am

I decided to have a quite paddle down a short stretch of the Grand River about a week ago ... brought my camera and got some pic's along the way .

I put in , across from my house in Preston .... Spike watches from the bank as I paddle downstream ...

Image

Image

Cool to see others enjoying the river as well ... this father and son team were heading to a small island downstream where they planned to camp for the night ...

Image

Lots of cool stone work to look at as I paddle quitely along ...

Image

Image

Cool caves haven't changed much ... my brother and I use to explore them about 40 years ago ..

Image

This crew took advantage of the great weather and drifted along in a dingy ..

Image

Of course there were lots of geese along the way ...

Image

Image

Image

This guy passed by in a hurry ... trying to catch up to his group

Image

Some cool looking backyard artwork along the way ..

Image

I cruise past the golf course ..

Image

Where the river widens and gets deep .. some people power up from Galt to fish for the afternoon ...

Image

Some more backyard art work ...

Image

A train passes over the old railway bridge behind GCI as I get closer to the end of my one hour paddle ...

Image

I planned to pull out at the Galt Rowing club , but stop for a moment to take pictures of the ducks feeding on the floating weed patches ...

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

As I ease my canoe to the launch ramp at the Galt Rowing club , a small dog surveys the surroundings ...

Image

Image

A fun way to kill an hour in the afternoon !

All they were missing was the beer! Great shots as usual. I've been going snap happy with the new Nikon, but finding the time to download them is another thing.

Your pictures are not just pictures, they tell a great story. I feel like I just read a novel.


Enjoyed the read. :)
