Family Canoe Trip

In the midst of daily life and preparations to return to South Africa, we took time out to go on our first, family canoe trip.  We covered approximately 10 miles of Penns Creek, which took us about 5 hours.  It was a beautiful day, and we thoroughly enjoyed being in the Lord's beautiful Creation!  We were blessed (3 or 4 times) to see two bald eagles (see picture below).  (Thanks to the Richard Hughe family for loaning us their canoe!  It was a great blessing)

At the helm...

It was a beautiful day!

We picked one of the smallest islands in the river, and stopped for lunch.

We "chased" them down the river.

Nap time!

Antonie made great progress at knowing how to steer the canoe.


  1. How nice, and especially exciting to see the bald eagles! I've never canoed, but it looks like a beautiful family outing.

  2. That was nice! Really a special time....would love to do that sometime, too! Dad
