This past weekend Crystal Summers, myself and 2 contest winners (plus guests) made our way out to Ile du Grande Calumet for the Wonderdog's Whitewater Weekend. On tap, 2 solid days of fun on the Ottawa River with HorizonX.
After the drive north through Algonquin Park we crossed the border into Quebec and to HorizonX. We decided to head out for dinner and grab some authentic french poutine. Blows anything New York Fires has to offer right out of the water. Delicious! (They layered the cheese and gravy through the fries, not just dump them on top.)
After our poutine dinner we headed back to base camp and took the kayaks and paddleboats out to burn off some of the extra calories we just digested.
After our "exercise" we grabbed our bags and headed to our tents. Not your typical nylon tents that you might use camping, we're talking legit wood and canvas tents, Complete with electricity (for the girls) and cots for us to sleep on. (Hardly what I'd call camping).
We awoke Saturday to a beautiful morning. A gentle fog on the water, the sun pelting our semi-frozen bodies with warmth. We made our way down to the waterside deck that would become our kitchen table, and enjoyed a hearty breakfast and got ready for our first day out on the river.
