I’ll always choose a kaiki over a canoe, but since Canada is my chosen home, I’ll admit to my fondness for the quintessentially Canadian boat. Few things spark up a patriotism in me like the image of a red canoe harnessed to the spine of an unpretentious, beaten-up, old station wagon. A few streets north of me, on the quiet, tree-lined streets of Seaton Village, one such car/canoe exists. I imagine a family piled in with a boot full of beers, bacon, potato chips and bug spray, ready for a weekend of swimming, canoeing and marshmallow roasting. If I ever see them, I may just jump into the backseat with the kids and retrievers. What an adventure that would be. Happy Birthday Canada, thank-you for having me.
