Did it ever feel great to get our canoe in the water! I took Gabe and Noah for a little paddle first, then Zach and Ben…. and Noah. We had to bring him again because otherwise he was going to stand on the shore hysterically screaming.
The following day (yesterday) we spent it almost entirely in town…. signing papers, groceries, proper sized paddles for Zach and Gabe….. and at the end of it I asked the boys what they liked best about our new place. Noah said, “I like being in the canoe”. I’m trying to remember what the others said….. it’ll come to me.
Then it was Jaska’s turn. We’re pretty sure it was his first time in a canoe. From now on, whenever Graeme and I paddle we’re going to take him so that he gets accustomed to being in a canoe. He seemed content.
Speaking of Jaska, we’re pretty sure he chased the bear off early yesterday morning. Early this morning he was ferociously defending our property from a beaver that was attempting to come ashore.
