This year our annual canoe trip focused on Conroy Marsh. This was the part of last year's trip that we had to abort due to high winds. This large marsh is roughly 24 square kilometres in size. It is the joint estuary of the Little Mississippi River and the York River and joins the Madawaska between Combermere and Palmer Rapids. We put our canoes into the Madawaska River just downstream from the bridge in Combermere at the Bent Anchor Bar & Restaurant. The owner, Maggie, gave us permission to park our SUV overnight. As usual, we had two canoes, two people in each (Bernie and I in the blue canoe and Ted and Ken in the red canoe). For me, our annual canoe trip is an affirmation that I'm still in good enough physical health to enjoy my retirement years!
