Canada

I am a chronic traveller. You might find me in the cockpit of a sea kayak, hiking a backcountry trail, riding a wave, cycling single-track or riding a motorcycle on another adventure. I dream of becoming a freelance travel writer when I grow up, but for now I'm content living life to its fullest.

Into the Islands

 

August, 2013: my old friend Cam Taylor and I set out on a short paddle from Picton, Ontario, to the 1000 Islands region.  We cruised the length of Adolphus Reach and across a section of the eastern end of Lake Ontario to Amherst Island where we camped the night.  Next day, we crossed to Wolfe Island, home to more than 85 controversial wind turbines that dot the island and shape its panorama.  We arrived at the east end of Wolfe Island as the sky opened and the rain came down in buckets.  After a closer inspection of one of the infamous turbines, we ended the day admiring a colourful sunset.  Day three, we paddled along the north shore of Wolfe Island, crossing to Howe Island and following its southern shore to Aubrey Island in the beginning of the 1000 Islands.  The final day was a gentle meander into the islands, Canada's famous Thousand Islands region, stopping at a friend's cottage near Ivy Lea.
