Who could resist coming back for more after a day like this! A typical August afternoon in Lac La Peche can be anything but typical. After a morning spent kayaking around Lac La Peche, with a lunch spent sunning on the rocks, who could resist taking the plunge! This was a tough photo to take – I only had the one shot to catch the moment as my friends jumped off the rock to join me for a swim. With legs furiously kicking, I tread water with my little hand held camera. As you can see from everyone’s faces – everyone had a blast. This day trip has inspired our merry band of adventure seekers to spend the upcoming long weekend kayak camping at Lac La Peche.
