Paul Bartlett's blue canoe and my "Margaritaville, are pictured on the Shoal Lake side of the Bass Lake to Shoal Lake portage. Paul, Keith and I were out on a 5-day trip and we wanted to spend the day on Shoal Lake. We have caught large pike in the shallow water on the southeast end of Shoal and there is one spot that yields a lot of chunky bass. We let almost everything go except for a fish or two for a shore lunch.
These canoe trips are the highlight of the year.
Some people notice the "hand of God" in this painting. It actually was intentional when I saw it in the rocks and colours. It's a beautiful place! The end of this particular portage is one of my favourite places - not just because it’s the end of an 810 metre Canadian Shield trek. The colours of shallow water morph into those of vegetation. The colours conceal where the land ends and the channel to Shoal Lake begins. This is part of the Restoule Provincial Park and the Restoule Upper French Canoe Routes.
