Aug 15, 2014 - Day 6 - Island 185 in Lake Temagami

A better day today. Still pretty grey but we were able to take the boat to Temagami Island for a couple of hours of hiking on the trails there. Not that it hasn’t been nice to relax, but it was great to get a bit of exercise before we leave tomorrow. We have had a great visit despite the rain, and as Connie has said, nothing can dampen our spirits as we continue our grand adventure.

Aug 14, 2014 - Day 5 - Island 185 in Lake Temagami

We woke up this morning to a very grey day. If this weather keeps up all day, we will undoubtedly spend our time eating, drinking, talking, reading and mainly relaxing. Later - it rained off and on (mostly on) all day, but it was nice and warm in the cottage with a fire in the stove. Rick's brother Don and his wife Karen joined us today. Another great dinner and evening of socializing with friends. In honour of Robin Williams, we all watched Mrs. Doubtfire tonight.

We are on our way to visit our friends Judy & Rick Cooke, who have a cottage on an island just south of Temagami. The Lake Temagami Access Road is a disaster. We bounced all the way to the lake. At times we could not go slow enough. We finally got there, in the rain, got our bags & food into the boat and headed for the island...

Hello Everyone This is just a quick note to let everyone know that I have made it safely back to Bracebridge. I have been home for a few days now but the jet lag has just been terrible. There were one or two days were I could barely function. Today is one of the better days, I feel almost normal. Well, whatever normal is. It is great to be home with Jani and my dogs, but I am very sad for all that I have left. It's ok, because to break the blues, I have lots of pictures to remind me of the journey that I have just taken. These past five...
