June 24th-25th, 2011 I paddled the detroit river with my good friend Natalie and her dad Todd Lucier from Northern Edge Algonquin. It was a great trip celebrating Natalie’s graduation from film school as paddled through her home town of Windsor, Ontario. We kayaked about 72km along the Canadian shoreline of the Detroit River exploring Peche Island at the mouth of the River in Lake St. Clair, paddling under the Ambassador bridge connecting Windsor and Detroit and camping out at local paddler Don’s place near River Canard past Fighting Island. The next morning we continued out to explore the Boblo Island abandoned amusement park and out to Lake Erie to the Lucier’s family cottage just past Colchester, Ontario.
