I had a wonderful day!

The guide, Mr. Issei, was very careful, the weather was good, and the people who participated were wonderful people, and it was late for an hour, but I don't mind at all, and I don't mind if it's even later. It was a wonderful tour I was able to enjoy the great outdoors of Canada!
