A lazy day today spent hiding from the heat with Hugo, with Seanna heading up to the Rogers Cup to see Nadal get swarmed by fans. Tomorrow I’ll paddle five hours, the last long paddle before I cross Lake O (Niagara-on-the-Lake to Toronto) in a couple weeks with Max from Halifax and P.J. from L.A., both who I connected with through this blog. Turns out Max from Halifax is a friend of a friend, which is exactly why I like Halifax so much.
