Canoeing on Easter Sunday

Intermission

Before I delve into the next blog series about my Aunt Anna (the eighth child of Friedrich and Emma Klopp), I would like to share a short video which I filmed on Easter Sunday. My wife and I decided to go to our beloved Taite Creek Campground and venture out for a canoe ride on the blue waters of the Arrow Lake. While my nature-loving wife was paddling,  still young at heart she was happily singing a German boating song. Enjoy.

    Awesome!!!! I usually start singing when I am in danger of drowning. 😂 Well, I have never been in real danger of drowning but when the conditions are challenging.
    So happy to see you guys out and enjoying the wonderful Canadian scenery.

      As a child I used to sing when I was alone in a dark room. It helped to dispel my fears.

      Hopefully, your region in Alaska is warming up soon.

        Yes, it was warmer today, in the low 50’s F. It felt warm as the sun was shining brightly. Thankfully, no snow! It snowed much last week!

    Her voice sounds still very young! I am repeating myself: you are blessed to live in or near nature like that!

    Beautiful. IMHO, with your ability to engage with nature on respectful terms, you deserve the bounty of nature that you have in your neighbourhood.
