We had 3 days of solid rain in Cairns before leaving, setting new records on the amount of rain in a 24 hour period, 330mm in 48 hours! But as we are true Canadians, a little rain wasn't going to stop us from going. After borrowing and buying all the necessary camping gear we were loaded up without an inch to spare. We had the roof pod loaded and even had to strap the eski (cooler) to the roof.

We had been invited by another teacher who is going on an exchange to Canada, just north of Edmonton for 2012. Him, his wife and daughter, as well as 4 other couples were camping for the weekend. There were lots of children for our three to play with and many water sports to enjoy. There were two boats, skis, wake boards, knee boards, tubes and a new toy, a disc. We all had a great time playing in the water.

Some of the area around the lake reminded us of British Columbia.
A fantastic weekend! Water skiing in October!! (That's a first)
