Bay of Fundy Discovery Course with Outward Bound Canada, Kennebecasis River, Grand Manan Island & the Fundy Footpath

From July 3rd to July 27th I flew out to New Brunswick to be a part of an amazing 17 day Outward Bound course. I was fortunate enough to have some family friends who lived in St. Martins and own and operate the Caves Family Restaurant who I sent a few days with before and after the course.

After spending a few days getting our gear and food organized the students arrived and we were off to the Kennebecasis River for the kayak training for a few days around Long Island. We then went off to Grand Manan Island for our expedition kayak section spending about 8 days in and around the outer coast of the island.

The second part of the expedition was hiking the Fundy Footpath from just outside St. Martins to the Fundy National Park over the last 6 days of the course.

Finally A Sunny Fall OSAT Trip at Sleeping Giant Oct 15-17

So the past few years i have led a variety trips for the Outdoor Recreation Parks and Tourism dept at Lakehead University in Thunder Bay Ontario. Every year for the backpacking trip weekend for the 2nd year outdoor skills and theory class we get horrible rain or cold weather… this year it was different. We had beautiful sunny days and this really brought the group moral up. We had a pretty fantastic group. I am very happy i was able to come back to Thunder Bay to be a part of this trip before heading west.
