Marc and I tried out the hammock

Tubing 2

Recognize the yellow shoe?

Eric and I passed Marc's tube
as you can see He's missing too

That was fun, let's do it again
This time Eric and I on the tubes and the boys on the
other floaty thing

We did the same as the boys
here it is me holding on

and Eric, same story

The boys on the other hand did fine this run

This thing works much better

The boys made it on top this time

Reorganizing and going down the river all the way
This was a lot of fun

Tubing 1

We brought our own tubes, helmets and life jackets
We only needed a $2.50 wristband and sign a waiver for tubing
You get in by the biggest rapids
you can choose to get in the water past the rapids
or do the rapids multiple times

Isaac in his second run
These Elora rapids are fast and it is not easy to stay in your tube

Here are Annette, Eric, Josh and Karina approaching the rapids

Karina had this big smile on her face

This is Josh's leg sticking out
It's not recommended to go down the rapids this way,
it kind of hurts

It's a 2 km run, at the end the water is quiet

This tube like thing was much more stable
it was fun to ride

loading the tubes to go back to our campsite

The added Touch

At our photography course we learned that when you add people in a nature picture it can add something to it

I think here it does

The fisherman gives the picture depth and he's walking and makes you think of walking there too

Elora Empty Building

There are a few empty factory buildings near the gorge

Marc has been reading a book in school
playing in such a building

Tractor line-up

Ada thought her husband Ruud would be interested to know
what kind of tractors we had
So Olga Rien and Marc lined them up

It was kind of fun

For the finishing touch we added the lawn mower
