A busy start to our day had Gin prepping for a live TV interview in their downtown Kenora studios ,while I tried to micromanage my lovely ill mothers future from my cellphone.Late morning we were off in John's boat for a tour of the lake,stopping every once in a while at a promising point or reef to fish for Lake of the Woods favourite game fish,the pickerel ,commonly known as the walleyed pike.John our guide told us not to try to hard as he had taken out some nice fillets from the freezer earlier that day.We complied.

Te rest of the day was rather stress free,Gin and I catching up on our dose of vitamin D on the deck,with our Kindles and Q and K dawg alternating between the paddle board and the kayak,exploring Lily Pad Bay and area.

After a dinner of Walleyed pike,dipped in flour,then eggwash,followed by a coating of breadcrums,cooked to a golden brown,we set out with Cameron,John' youngest son to catch the evening bite.Sure enough we located the fish off a rocky point and had 5 keepers in the live well ,as the sun lit up the last of the western sky.If you ever get a chance to visit here,jump on it.Eagles,loons,pelicans,shorebirds,fish and more seem to all co-exist in this spectacular part of Canada,with the flourishing town of Kenora at it's doorstep.
