July 26 to Quesnel reenactment

The Quesnel club paddlers had paddled this stretch of river often and told us history and information about the area as we paddled through.

We stopped at the Blackwater River for a break. A few went for a swim while most explored and stretched their legs.

After paddling 81km we arrived at Quesnel, at the confluence of the Quesnel and Fraser Rivers. There was another large crowd to meet the three voyageur canoes for the reenactment arrival.

After the ceremonies, we loaded the boats on trailers and headed to Lazy Daze campground. The local canoe club prepared us a great BBQ that night and did a historical skit about Simon Fraser. Very entertaining.
