I sure miss that canoe

Appeal for the return of a stolen canoe, used by many throughout the summer months.

Dear editor,

We have many beautiful places here on the North Island.

One of these is Clint Beek recreation site on Keogh Lake.

I have enjoyed many wonderful days in the sun, on the beach, and canoeing around the lake.

Friends, neighbours, and fellow campers would often borrow my canoe for a paddle, so I decided to leave it there for all to enjoy.

Last Sunday was another pristine day, so I thought I’d go out to the lake for a paddle, and bring my canoe in for the winter.

When I got to the lake there was only a trail in the sand, where my canoe use to be. Perhaps my canoe will find its way back to me and all those who enjoyed it last summer ….
