French River August 2014 Trip Report

French River August 2014 Trip Report

Six club members went on the annual 10 day  trip to the French River and Delta which was capably lead by Henry Nur.  The weather was ideal with relatively little rain and  we were windbound for only one day.  Click "Read More" to see some photos of the trip.

 

 

 

 

 

Breakfast first morning.  Xuan brought 5 dozen fresh eggs to serve at 3 breakfasts on the trip and did not break even one!

On third day, some people were more keen to go for a swim than others!

We had a sturdy suppers of sausages, corn and buckwheat that day to keep us warm.

The corn got dropped in the dirt and had to be rinsed off.  I only heard about this after I had finished eating!

We paddled down the Old Voyageur Channel on day 4.  The next three photos show some of the striking scenery.

A supper of split pea soup with ham and frozen vegetables was dehydrated at home.
