Ferrying Firewood Across The River

Ferrying firewood across the river in a canoe

Sometimes you get to a campsite on a remote river and the firewood has been picked over. Especially if it has been used for a while. But there is almost always firewood on the other side of the river. In this (grainy) photo, I’m transporting a canoe full of firewood for the night’s cook fire across the Bonaventure river on the Gaspé Peninsula in Quebec.

    Even though the photo is grainy, it’s clear to me that you’re squinty eyed and mean business!

Anything that appears to be an error in spelling or grammar is actually the author’s clever use of the vernacular, and as such is not an error, but rather a carefully placed literary device demonstrating prodigious artistic prowess.
