Urban Paddling: On the Rouge, just below the 401

I have completed most of the required repairs to the canoe, just about everything is done except for the seat. The two metal stays have been removed, I still need to figure out a way to fasten the seat down.

After a crazy weekend bailing out the basement, I gave myself the luxury of an afternoon off, and went for a paddle up the Rouge, from its mouth on Lake Ontario, up to the 401. It is very slow water, and very shallow.

It was a very quiet afternoon… I did see a couple of cranes, a few jumping fish, and a friendly muskrat. I must say, I feel refreshed!
