Fun in the Sun

We can’t remember early May ever being so beautiful.  We had a great weekend’s paddling, and everyone managed to avoid the terrific thunderstorm late on Saturday afternoon.DSCF7737DSCF7736

This weekend we had seasoned canoeists and complete novices out on the water.  Our Taster Paddle, from our base down to Swarkestone, is just over 3 miles and about an hour on the water.  This canoe contains 3 very enthusiastic first timers; in the beginning, steering did not come easily, and they zigzagged their way downstream.  They were laughing all the way.  DSCF7744DSCF7748A few groundings on the gravel banks, and 360 degree turns later, they began to look very stylish, and even had time to take selfies.  Why wouldn’t you?
