So, if you’ve been following my blog for a while, you know I had an obsession with the idea of canoeing in a red canoe. Preferably last fall when the leaves would have been red, orange, yellow, brown, etc. However, that dream did not happen. Early Summer we took the family with some other family: fun cousins. - to Silver Lake in Maple Falls, WA. We’ve been there before and we knew the price was right for renting a canoe. (I think it was around $8 for 1/2 hour or hour).
I’m so glad I was in the canoe with my very strong brother in-law and my niece. There was quite a strong current and at one point we went in circles about 4 times before we figured out how to maneuver the craft. The canoe was deep green which was beautiful. but I still have an obsession with red canoes.
