Lac La Peche Day Trip Report

Lac La Peche 2020 08 01 101On Saturday, August 1st five club members and one guest enjoyed a day’s canoeing and kayaking on Lac La Peche in Gatineau Park. After a short delay occasioned by two different identifications of the “put in” location, we found ourselves quite delighted with both the setting and the company for our outing. Lac La Peche is a relatively large lake. It was a bright summer’s day with periodic cloud cover as a welcome respite to the 30-degree maximum temperature.  There was a very gentle breeze to offer ideal paddling conditions. We enjoyed a brief stop for lunch, and several of our group enjoyed a couple of swims in lovely warm water. We saw and heard several loons and one turkey vulture, viewed numerous water lilies and cardinal flowers in bloom, and met up with a great many other swimmers, canoeists, kayakers, and stand-up paddle-boarders. Unexpectedly meeting old friends and fellow water enthusiasts was a pleasant surprise and addition for at least one of our group, and several of us made plans for another excursion next week.
