The Canoe

We bought a canoe and it snowed the next day. A little off season maybe, but apparently just in time for good trout fishing. We've been told trout like it cold and at this time of year they hang near the surface of the water before the lake freezes. Our sources are sound.

We took advantage of the extra hour of sleep and light and bundled up and headed out in our new old canoe. It was a gorgeous morning and about 40 swans passed overhead as we bobbed and trolled and caught our dinner.

A beautiful thing

These are the beautiful product of a beautiful weekend spent with a beautiful friend in a beautiful place out in the country.

There is a feeling of overwhelming bliss that comes with driving down the Alaska Highway in my warm beast full of 'Boards of Canada' under a pink and blue morning sky while 6 swans moving south beat through the air over the evapourating water of a perfectly still lake reflecting the green and white of a mountain with a snow line slowly creeping down towards you...

There should probably be some commas in there.
