Killbear Paddlers Rendezvous 2013

A long tradition now of some 15+ years, this years weather cooperated with only mild showers early Saturday morning, wrapping up around 730am in time for breakfast. Compared to last years constant downpours, Thursday afternoon to Saturday evening was awesome. Had my customary swim in Georgian Bay - have to do it at least once every year, and now that we`re back on the edge of the GTA this was our only chance this year.
A true rendezvous rather than a rigidly scheduled event with many activities, old friends and some new got together to share designs, boats, and paddle everything from wood canvas canoes, sailing canoes to a 42` 6 man outrigger canoe. Below, a sampling of pictures from my all time favourite place. Clean water, tall trees, and fresh air cant be beat. Enjoy the pictures...
