We're on the river again! Time to continue my journey but I was a little late starting as the night before had produced a heavy dew and so I needed to dry out my tent before I packed it away. I had planned to meet with the CBC reporter at Emily Murphy Park but when I arrived there it was unsuitable for bringing in the canoe so we had to change our plans and agreed to meet up at the Walterdale Bridge near the Kinsmen Centre. Being a weekend, the river was a lot busier than I had experienced previously with a number of canoes and kayaks and a few power boats which helped produce a few waves. Added to this there was also a wind which managed to change direction constantly and make my travel interesting. Having completed my interview and been filmed as I proceeded down the river I continued my journey to find a suitable spot to camp for the night. Travelling in the city limits is not easy as there really are no places to camp legally. In the end I came to Gold Bar Park where I encountered three fishermen who helped me secure my canoe and all my barrels, etc. This is where I spent my night.
These sponsors helped to make my canoe trip possible.
