    Quest for the Bay - Bustards and Back Again - French River Hang Aug 2019

    EGL - French River Canoe Trip - Hartley Bay Marina to the Bustard Islands - August 2019


    View west from the Bustard Islands, Georgian Bay

    Canadian Shield, dry coastal forests and the vast expanse of an inland freshwater sea make the French River a canoeing destination in a class of it's own. From a bustling marina to the windswept solitude of a tiny island on the Bay, from rapids to emergency rooms, this was a trip to remember.

    Emergency rooms? Hopefully nothing serious! I'm on the edge of my seat after this tease.

    ugh waking up stiff and sore for the first time in a week. (not sleeping in a hammock has an obvious downfall). Driving in traffic on the 400/401 last night made me contemplate which was worse. Toronto driving or looking for a place to "go" while avoiding rattlesnakes. Jury is still out.
