Romancing the Water
Canoeing in tandem is a great way to travel on a romantic holiday. Everyone knows that when you go hiking together one of you is always striding off and the other is struggling to catch up whilst the former is getting exasperated by waiting.
It cannot happen in a shared boat. Of course you have to get past the bickering stage where you each blame the other for why the canoe is turning in circles or unaccountably running into each bank in turn.
After several hours of this kind of nonsense you’ll discover that one person can take control whilst the other gets on with important things like taking photographs, pointing out the wildlife or preparing the cocktails or some such.
And when you’ve paddled into some deep green secluded spot where the river runs crystal clear besides a hidden silver beach who knows how the situation may resolve itself.
