Towards the end of this summer, I followed through on a promise I made to my Gran a year ago, she had run the Ottawa in a tandem canoe with my old man, and wanted to do it again.  However my Aunt did not want my dad to take her down again, because Gran and pops had swam at McKoys...  Dad was not allowed to take Gran down river anymore so I stepped up and said that I could take her down in a Dynamic Duo anytime she wanted, and we didn't have to tell Aunt Janet about it.

The second week of September right before I drove out west for work, Gran, Dad, and I were all free and we met at the put in for the Ottawa.  I had stopped by the Level 6 office the day before and the boys hooked Gran up with a sprayskirt, and a drytop for the day.

We had good lines all day with no flips, except at the end when Gran wanted to try rolling... We had a surf on baby face as well as one of the best on river lunches I have had in probably 8 years, with  a tin of Gran's rock bun cookies.  It was a great day for all of us, and I hope to take her down again next year maybe down the middle channel this time, Garvins??
