I was just talking to Jens about wanting to do this trip to Broughton Archipelago Marine Provincial Parkthis Summer …
I love this video and while I LOVE taking E canoeing with us, I do long for an amazing trip with just Jens and I.
This is the time of the year where we start planning trips for the Spring and Summer so we’re back to focusing 100% on building our health and stamina so we can be out on the water, portaging and hiking. Breakfast is my favorite meal of the day, and I especially love Sunday breakfast. It’s more leisurely at this time of the year since we aren’t already on the road or in the water or out and about.
If you are expecting a low-carb, keto friendly pancake to cook the same as your gluten version – you are in for a surprise. The batter is much wetter and I find the best bet is to cook them in a frying pan that you can add a lid to to help them steam. Pile on some berries or bananas and some maple syrup if you want and these are a great healthy way to start your day.
Along the way, Mason paints scenes that capture his attention and muses about his love of the canoe, his artwork and his own sense of the land. Mason also uses the film as a commentary on the link between God and nature and the vast array of beautiful canvases God created for him to paint.
Features breathtaking visuals and exciting whitewater footage, with a musical score by Bruce Cockburn. For more background info on this film, visit the NFB.ca blog.
Calling the man “Paddle to the Sea,” he sets his carving down on a frozen stream to await spring’s arrival. The film follows the adventures that befall the canoe on its long odyssey from Lake Superior to the sea.
Bill Mason looked at securing film rights to the book Paddle to the Sea by Holling C. Holling as early as 1960. It was originally intended for the non-theatrical (educational) market, but was eventually blown up to 35 mm and distributed theatrically, which led to an Oscar nomination in the best short subject category. Parts of the film were shot near Mason’s home at Meech Lake.
Welcome to Big Yellow Canoe - our passion project to bring our love for canoeing, the outdoors, camping, home and just getting out there and living life to the fullest.
We're building this blog to share our trip reports and our recipes as well as stories to inspire you to try canoeing, get outside and do the things that you love ... every day. Life is short. We'd rather be paddling and hope you'll tag along.
Jens and Anita
