That’s a wrap! It’s been fun, Winter, but I’m off to warmer climes for a week and though it’ll still be cold when I get back, I’m hoping I’ve seen the last of the deep freeze till next December. 488 all winter km year to date.not too bad.

The from shore and on water view of today’s frigid paddle on Lake Ontario. Geared up right and always safety first, Lake Ontario makes a great year round playground. Thanks for the from shore photo.

Yes to all of the above. This is the 4th year we’ve been out there all winter when conditions are appropriate and we take safety very seriously. See you on the water this Spring!

Pretty cool to paddle in the morning and ski in the afternoon. 10 km on Lake Ontario and 12 km on the trails at Mono Nordic. I’ll be feeling this one tomorrow. .

Hello, March! Don’t let all that ice fool you. It was a scorcher on Lake Ontario today inside the dry suit. Sun’s definitely getting stronger. Spring’s right around the corner.

It’s all a matter of perspective. If asked the question, “What’s out of place in this photo?” most people would say the paddleboard. I look at things differently. I’d say it’s all the snow. It may be winter in Oakville and -10C, but it’s always a good day for a paddle.

I have yet to see an Olympian compete as apparently unprepared, unfocused and unmotivated as these guys were today. Wondering if that thought struck you as well.

Sorry, Dan, I’ve never paddled in Oshawa. I’m sure there’s open water on the lake, I’m just not sure about safe access this time of year.

Dear America, I’m trying to understand you. How is it that your southern border is a national emergency and your weekly mass shootings aren’t?

Not that I need an opinion piece in the NY Times to make me proud to be Canadian but it’s still nice to see. Living in this world is about more than just getting your own. We’re far from perfect but I’m so incredibly proud and thankful to be Canadian.

Back in action on the water after the Polar Vortex. Lots of ice chunks to dodge but a fun SW bump and a great hour spent on Lake Ontario. Lucky to live where I can do this all winter.

Thought I’d sneak in a quick one today before the dreaded Polar Vortex sets in. Think I’ll focus on inside sports for a few days. Lake Ontario, I’ll see you on Saturday.

Not sure I’ll make it through the upcoming “Polar Vortex” getting on the water each day. Today’s -19C windchill was plenty cold enough. But it’s a privilege to experience being on Lake Ontario through the winter. I’ll be out there as much as I can.

I thought it was already cold enough. calling for the reappearance of the dreaded “Polar Vortex” next week. Will we still be able to paddle? Stay tuned....

Here’s to training partners, who make the hard work easier by giving you a push and make things a lot more fun, especially in the middle of winter. A big shoutout to the crew I get to train with daily. Thank you!
