Canoeing at Burnaby Lake

We recently shared the purchase of a fibreglass canoe with some friends. It lives at our house and it is a giant 17′ thing built in New Westminster a long time ago.┬áThe maiden voyage was to Burnaby Lake on Mother’s Day. I meant to post these photos back then, but, well, you know – life.
