Canoe with a View

Some hotels give you chocolate on your pillow. Others offer rooms with kitchenettes or Jacuzzi bathtubs.

My hotel gave me a canoe—everyone gets a canoe with their little log cottage and I took full advantage, setting off across The Lake of Two Rivers with a lunch and a paddle.

Later in the day, I upgraded my canoe for a float plane, which is like two canoes strapped to an airplane. Here’s a quick video about my day of canoeing in Algonquin Provincial Park.

    Beautiful video, Andrew. I like how the bird flies behind you as you are swimming. I’m thoroughly enjoying your adventures. Thanks for taking me along! Btw, nice background music, quite fitting.
