Wow! This is a lot harder than we expected. For the past 3 days we have been battling strong heads winds and an extremely strong current on the St Lawrence (we are paddling up stream). Having record high waters and an extremely rainy spring have not made it any easier. On Sunday we had to wade in the water and pull the canoe because the current was just too strong to paddle against. Yesterday we did a short 40m portage at the Becancour port due to super strong current. But we are having a fun time and are both really happy. We have seen lots of raptors and migrating birds. So far when we get up in the morning everything is covered in ice: gloves, pfd’s, zips, boots, etc. but we expected the temperature to drop below zero in April.
