This morning the four canoes from Hope paddled the 5km to Mission and joined the rest of the boats in a flotilla for the Brigade Days voyageur reenactment making a total of 9 boats.
Together they paddled to Crescent Island for a stretch break, then, in costume, to Fort Langley for the reenactment arrival to a large crowd and blackpowder salute.
The paddle from Mission to Fort Langley is 26km.
We left the boats on shore, paraded to the fort for welcoming ceremonies then enjoyed a truly voyageur meal of bannock and beans.
Two of the Fort Langley canoes then continued on Simon Fraser's journey down the river, paddling a total today of 64km, to camp at the Fraser Foreshore Park in Burnaby.
