Post subject:  Canoe Sailing in the Caribbean

Nothing is so unalloyed as the joy of pottering over a hot, little fire when the stomach cries out and the body tingles with the healthy fatigue of work in the open. My spirit was at ease, for the canoe had proven herself and even if she did leak, I was getting used to that -- as one becomes used to a boil on the neck. To lie on my blankets -- no bed was ever so welcome -- and to eat and watch the last light fade from the hills of Carriacou made me glad that I had been put on this earth to live. After supper the companionable purr of my faithful pipe made just the conversation to suit my mood. The night was soft and balmy, and as I lay and watched the brilliant constellations of the tropical night the lap-lap of the water on the smooth sand lulled me off to sleep.

Strange but true...
Fred's Caribbean canoe now resides in Canada.
I'm hoping if I pop the forward hatch I'll find one of his yellow oiled waterproof bags containing his 7X7X7 Comstock tent, his iron coal pot, and his Tarantula mascot.

Interesting,

Canoeing in the Caribbean didn't work out to well for Pierre Trudeau.
