Thanksgiving Weekend 2010

Some of the sturdier OMDAites braved the cooler fall weather to spend the Thanksgiving weekend camping at Killbear. One last chance to enjoy the park befor the weather gets too cold.


Of course, Aleid was eager to go for a cruise. He managed to get a great sail in to the Lighthouse near Sandy Island in a steady breeze and returned home through Rose Channel.

Others just enjoyed the fabulous weather.

Rock Lake

Some of the OMDAites spent the preceding week camping at Rock Lake in Algonquin Park. They had wonderful weather, and the week was well attended. They hiked, biked, and kayaked.

On Thursday they tackled the Booth Trail. Aleid wore his wooden shoes to make it extra challenging.
