 Adventures on The Thames





Starting Out at Springbank Dam - London, Ontario

While attending summer school classes at UWO in London, Ontario, Canada many students took advantage of our Thames River Adventures and the photos (114) of our fun times together follow.

We had many great evenings together enjoying the scenery and wildlife. For the first time we saw seven deer along the way and I am sure there were many more that we did not see. We also saw two racoons swimming close to the shore and that is a first for me. The many Blue Herons, hawks, osprey and Kingfishers kept us entertained. Most of the trips were taken after class but we did one morning trip and it was wonderful also. Of the many trips we took out in the two months of classes only one was a rainy evening and it actually poured for a few minutes but Peter, Marylyn and Susan were most enthusiastic and even continued to our three hour destination.
