Once there I dragged the kayak up the shore and threw the ball for Trey to help him get rid of his bad case of the "sillies", as he'd whined and wiggled the whole way across. I had had to keep telling him to: "LIE DOWN !!!".
Then we headed into the island's interior to seek out the ruins again.
On Canada Day when I found located the fallen water tower for the first time, I was soooo disappointed when the batteries in my camera crapped out and I couldn't share photos of my find.
This time I found some ruins that I'd not seen before. This is the "Winter Hospital".
All told, Trey and I slogged our way over and around that island for over four hours.
We walked the interior of the island from the Cemetery (left end) to the Winter Hospital near the "Sand Flat".

We just had to walk around the point and we should see the kayak.
And we did.
See it there ?
Floating gently in the harbour ! WHAT ? FLOATING GENTLY IN THE FRIKKIN' HARBOUR !?!
And there is Trey's life jacket bobbing near the shore and floating nearby -- my paddle !
My life jack, with my car keys in the pocket is in the kayak.
I know, I know -- I'm an idiot !
I wadded out and grabbed the kayak. Unfortunately I had to put the sodden, cold life jacket on poor ol' Trey.
He was NOT amused !
You can bet I'll be dragging my kayak above the high water mark in future.
