paddle for pleasure, for relaxation, for adventure.
paddle alone and with friends.
I paddle to meditate.
I paddle to be with bugs,
birds, fish and
I paddle with blades single and double.
I paddle in water both fresh and salt, in bays, marshes,
swamps, bayous, creeks and rivers.
I paddle by hours and days.
I paddle for a rush and I paddle for calm.
I paddle canoes, usually solo, and kayaks, both
whitewater and sea.
But I am usually paddling in my free time.
Because I agree with River Rat, "there is nothing - absolutely
nothing- half so much worth doing as simply messing about in boats".
