Vermillion River

A few of the guys from work and I went for an afternoon canoe trip on the Vermillion river today. The plan was to put in where the river crosses highway 17 (west of Lively), and paddle up to a waterfall and back again. We went north a bit only to get to a set of rapids with no clear portage... then we went south of the highway down to a different waterfall and back again. I took a few pictures... click on the thumbnail below to check them out.

Guelph Lake 2 Triathlon

Guess I should have updated this earlier... anyway, Labour day weekend I did my last triathlon of the season. It was the provincial championship (for olympic distance) at Guelph lake (1.5k swim, 39k bike, 10k run). I was able to give my new bike a try, even though I had only picked it two days before. It was a great race, and apparently all the fast guys showed up (not surprising since it was the provincials). There are more pictures on my camera (thanks to Kate), but I haven't uploaded them yet.
