Saskatchewan Canoe Quest

Martina Carriere, one of the edcentre.ca students is busy maintaining a web site for the Saskatchewan Canoe Quest, a 12 stage race along the old fur trade waterway from La Loche to Cranberry portage in Manitoba. The teams and canoes were in La Ronge yesterday and raced from Missinippi to Stanley Mission today. Martina is posting results as they become available and is providing an opportunity to track the progress of the event and the teams.
There is nothing like the sight of a flotilla of voyaguer class canoes on the water and I can say from experience that there is nothing like paddling in one of these canoes as a participant. We wish all of the adventurer/competitors all the best.
Thanks to Martina for sending the link!   Saskatchewan Canoe Quest

FINISHING WHAT YOU STARTED

It is such a good feeling to finish what you started. To look back and be amazed at all those thousands of little tasks is a reward in itself. Only you will ever know how much work it was to accomplish. Only you will know all the ups and downs and sacrifices. So it is only right that only you will know the greatest feeling in the world... that of personal achievement, accomplishment and success. You can't buy this feeling or take short cuts and definitely no one can "gift" it to you. To all of you that have achieved your goals with us at edcentre.ca this year I would like to congratulate you. I would also like to thank you for being an inspiration to others including myself. Keep setting those goals, facing those fears, and achieving success.

Nature

I am very grateful for nature's beauty.  Yesterday I witnessed a 10% rainbow that was magnificent.  I wondered what people in the past might have thought they were perhaps a vision, spirit, or sign.  I know that I think of it today as a sign that I am very blessed.  I also saw a two year old bear that just woke up, a coyote that isn't scared of vehicles, and a silver fox.  It is such a treat to see these animals out in the free environment.  Even the two deer that I saw on the side of the highway were fascinating (although I was scared that they would jump out on the road).  It is a treat to be living in a Provincial park.
