November 9th was another great day on the Thames River and we took a trip from the dam to Kilworth. The water level was more than 2 feet above summer levels and it was moving fast making for some great rapids.

June 28th on the Thames and we went the whole rout to Delaware and it was a great ride with Sharlene and Mary-Anne. The water level was about 18 inches higher than summer levels due to a good rain on Thursday night so the trip was a blast.

April 29, 2008 - Springbank Dam to Komoka Bridge

The water was moving quite nicely and was about a foot above summer levels when we took Maureen's friend Suzanne for her first trip on the Thames and Suzanne was thrilled with the experience. With the water being a bit high the rapids were really nice at the Kilworth Bridge and Suzanne and I went through an extra two times as Maureen took some great photos. As we were approaching the Kilworth Bridge there was a med vac helicopter circling over our heads and it soon landed on the bridge at Killworth as there was a bad vehicle accident just before we arrived and people needed to be transported to the hospital quickly. After we went through the rapids we continued on to Komoka Bridge where we landed and tied our kayaks to the van. It was a wonderful day of kayaking.

March 26, 2008 - Springbank Dam to Kilworth Bridge

The water was moving quite quickly and was above summer levels a little more than two feet so Picture Rock was not even showing. With the fast water our trip was one hour and twenty minutes and a beautiful day at 40 degrees F.
