I am very weather-dependent person :) Just don't want to get sick -looking at some others that do get sick at work, the feeling is miserable. Tried to reschedule slight timing for St. Mark Summit for the next day but ended up cancelling it. I just don't get the respect I needed when I ask for rescheduling. If I am not needed, I don't feel a point to stay. Well, next time for St. Mark Summit.
Sunday (Oct 25) - I am on a canoeing -hiking trip. That was exciting. I never thought I would do Widgeon Falls because I am afraid of water and I don't know how to swim. So, I drop my fear, put on the yellow life jacket and paddle my life off against the strong water at Pitt River and paddle through the slough, which the water became calmer. Fish began to exhibit their playground with algae and clear water. I am very amaze of their playground -so lively. My thought started to wonder what if I could look at it, in a closer look. Yet, reaching the point where the water is too shallow that we have to push our canoe was the climax of the trip. The canoe can no longer move due to insufficient buoyancy from the shallow water. Got myself wet. Luckily, MR. Google told me to bring extra clothes for canoe trip.
About 2 hours with the strong waves and shallow area, we reach our destination. The hike was easy with just an hour reaching Widgeon Falls -we are the only human there when we reach. The trail is quite cut off from the normal hikers due to the need to cross Pitt River. We had our lunch and quickly head back because we are running of daylight.
We paddle so hard during the way back but the canoe kept sticking together too.. We love each other so much. Nevertheless, we make thing interesting by racing the way back. Of course, I lose but I think it helps to bring us back by 6.30pm -20 min after the sunset. Wow, the day gets dark so quickly.
Ended up with amazing sushi dinner because our thoughts are with the fish underneath the water -they were so huge
