Day 170 – Canoeing in Huron

June 19, 2009

Today, I worked in the morning, then went to visit David Wagner. We decided to go canoeing on the Huron River, which was quite an adventure. The weather was excellent when we started out, but by the time we got about a mile and a half up the river, a huge thunderstorm rolled in. Around that same time, the river was blocked by about 5 fallen trees, so we were out of the river searching for a way around when the lightning started, so we stayed on shore during the storm (which, lucky for us, passed quickly). We got soaked, but we managed to keep David’s camera dry, so there are a few photos of me below.

After the adventure, we washed the mud off of ourselves back at David’s house, then went to Quaker Steak & Lube in Vermilion for dinner, played putt-putt, and went to Huggy’s Coffee Bar to hang out.

It is always nice seeing David. I will miss him when he is teaching in France this fall and next year!
