East Again

East Again
May 22, 2022

Leaving Edmonton reprovisioned and re-energized, sights set east and paddling in earnest, I learned it takes about 3 hours to actually exit the city. This bridge, that bridge, the new pedestrian bridges, Peter Pocklington’s old residence, and the new Henday Highway. We even paddled past a dry-docked sternwheeler.

Eventually, finally, the city fell astern. Ahead lay Fort Saskatchewan, Métis Landing, Victoria Settlement, Buckingham House Fort George, and a score of other places that have shaped this country and its peoples. Places that still live and breathe and where you can feel time’s pulse. Places well worth paddling to.
