|Victory over Adversity|
A few kilometers further downstream, Gracie succumbed to exhaustion and agreed to accept a lift back the rest of the way. It turned out that she made right decision. Although we had already traveled five kilometers, there was another five kilometers between us and lunch!
Amy and Roger continued in their little canoe. The goal was to reach the lodge where a barbecue was awaiting. Tiring with each stroke of their paddles, our heroes finally saw an end in sight: the other canoes pulling up at a sandy beach. The critical judgment was whether to go right or left in approaching the beach. Unfortunately, they made the wrong call, and while they were on the wrong side, the canoe was swamped by the wake of a passing jet boat belonging to another group. The canoe, Amy, Roger and the camera slowly sank. All survived except the camera died by drowning.
Which is why there are no more photos to entertain you today!
