We started our 4th of July morning early as usual and did
the routine pack up. Today was Thursday so it would be our last full
day before heading back to base camp the next day.
We canoed across a very wide river. It was there that the
winds were strong enough for us to go sailing. We aligned our canoes side by
side and gave the two canoes on the outside both a long pole with a tarp
attached to it. We spread out the tarp like a sail and took off. It was a
nice break from paddling. We were able to sail for a while before the wind died down.
From their we had to canoe for the next couple hours until
we reached our campsite.
