Gull River, Maple Lake Ontario Canada July 25 2013

Both yesterday and today were near-perfect days for a low-key ride around the lake. We’ve added an electric trolling motor to the little red rowboat to make sight-seeing and pic-snapping a bit more fun.

I hadn’t taken out the boat before because with the huge storms of a couple of weeks ago the boat was swamped and the battery completely submerged. It may be girly of me, but I didn’t want to fool with it –better to let spouse figure out if all was well and he was back in the States for three weeks. Thankfully, everything turned out OK.

Yesterday, we hit the Gull River area of Maple Lake which is the only boat access area on the lake (though we didn’t go that far down river). Today we  went about 2/3’s across the widest point of the lake (about 2 miles) but stopped short of making the entire trip because we weren’t 100% sure of how much battery life ‘25%’ meant.

We pulled the swim dock out after our rides and swam until dinnertime. Today though, I need to attempt to be ready ( I’m not sure I’m ever going to be truly so until I get there) to set off for Toronto tomorrow for a day or so to meet friends. But, I’m quite sure we’ll be getting a lot of use of the old boat with the neat little new motor from now on.
