    I went to a wooden canoe show today in Marquette Michigan. Here are a few pictures of some the canoes.

    Nice pics. The Wooden Canoe Heritage Association holds a campout each year in September in Vilas County, WI. You can see a lot of wonderful examples of old canoes at the campout, which is open to the public.

    What a great way to begin the day! Thanks for sharing all those great canoes. I especially love the bark canoes. So glad the traditional skills required to construct one are continuing on.

    That's all for now. Take care and until next time...

    be well.

    Those Downeast lakes are rocky. But the water is so nice and the fishing is good too.

    This one actually hit a rock in the Pleasant River in Columbia at the "Late for Lunch" river race. Pity, it had just been restored the winter prior.

    Haha, none. I already own one and another that needs restoration, plus my wood rowboat restoration project that I haven't worked on all summer. But those birchbark canoes looked tempting, luckily they weren't for sale.

    OK, make way for the Cajun wood canoes (pirogues). Took pics of these at the annual Natchitoches-NSU Folk Festival in Natchitoches, LA. I have a special place in my heart for these little boats after building 4 of them and hunting/exploring with them over the years.
