Widgeon Creek and Falls

Here’s a short video of our canoeing, hiking, and what the Widgeon Falls looks like!

Two Hikes and Canoeing

Sunday, July 12th, 2009

It’s been an awesome weekend!  I went on two hikes yesterday, and a canoe trip today! I tried to log our trek’s each time, but only a couple of them came out properly:

Saturday morning, Sheena and I went out to Jug Beach in Belcarra and hiked about 5.5km I believe.  Each direction only took us 26 minutes.  We also spent a bit of time wandering on the ocean beach!  The map data was fairly inaccurate, and only started logging half way to the beach on the way there!

After our hot morning hike, we stopped in for slurpee’s at 7-11, then wandered over to Minnekhada for yet another short hike!  This time, the GPS was way out to lunch (I guess it was having a bad day), so I have no map data.  However, timestamps on photos and Sheena’s stopwatch prove that we got down from the high knoll in just 19 minutes!  We really booked it and were running like crazy at the end!  Check out photos for both our hikes!

Today, Ray joined Sheena and I as we strapped the canoe to my roof and drove up to Widgeon Creek!  We set in around 2:30pm, and went for an hour in, then an hour out.  My GPS was really on the ball and logged our trek pretty amazingly – it’s crazy to see how we pretty much hit the end of the creek!  I also took a few good lookin photos you can check out.

Canoeing with Brittany

Brittany and Paul Canoeing

An absolutely amazing day all started with an awesome little trip with Brittany in the canoe up the slough and out into the Pitt River a little.

Here’s a short video of us getting the canoe onto the wheels:

We had a really good pace, and not only did we see a bunch of sweet scenery on such an amazing day, but we also had a half-dozen sightings of the resident Great Blue Herons.

You can see a couple pictures of one in my photo album.

After our epic journey, we were exhausted and napped back at my place for an hour before heading over to fufill my craving for Chinese food!  They really pile heaps onto your plate – I’ve literally got dinner for three days now!

Afterwards, I treated us to some gellato over at a place in Newport village, then we grabbed some coffee and went back to my place to watch “The Parking Garage” on Seinfeld!

You Don’t Mess With the Zohan

Later that night a bunch of us went out to see You Don’t Mess With the Zohan, and I got to sleep around 2am.
