and yet another year of trying to reach Maple Mountain and not getting there. It was a fun trip, although I missed having Adam on it.
I have a cold now, though. It started the day I left on trip, right before I left. It was mostly a sore throat and a light dry cough in the morning. Every morning of the trip I had the sore throat, but it got better during the day. Then when we got back (just ahead of the rain, which was great) it became a consistant hacking cough in my lungs. I woke up around 5:30 this morning in the bed (oooh, no roots in a bed!) and couldn’t stop coughing, so I took some night-time cold medication. It’s still affecting me now, though, I’m all groggy and just feeling wiped out. But at least I’m not coughing, which is fantastic.
I took about 180 photos on the canoe trip. I have to take them in for processing soon. I wonder if the grocery store here in New Liskeard does photo-CDs? I don’t feel like doing my own scanning this time… I’ll have to check once we get out of the house this afternoon.
I’ll be going back to Toronto tomorrow, but only for a couple of days. We plan to pack up our stuff and head back up north by Thursday, and do some work for Smoothwater starting on Friday.
I’ll write about the canoe trip later. I kept a trip journal while we were on the lake, so I may just transcribe that.
