See a new Window on the World.
It comes as a surprise to many people that when they try canoeing for the first time, even in a place they think they are familiar with, everything looks new and different.
Even if you are paddling on a stream only a few yards from a road you have travelled many times the world looks and feels different.
It’s a bit like sitting in a low slung sports car and you get an increased sense of speed even if you are only doing 30mph. Only kidding. Sitting in a canoe only inches from the water and snuggled down between the banks of a river overlooked by trees and perhaps cliffs you are in a different world. It smells different and sounds different and your perspective has completely changed.
Even if you are sharing a stretch of river with others you will notice how, somehow, you are impelled to whisper and share the quietness and smilingly enjoy what nature offers.
