Exploring by travelling down the local rivers is a different view of my local area. Being low in a Canadian canoe is such a different perspective. The magical moments are the flash of blue of a kingfisher or the whistle of an otter. Travelling nearly silently, we slip in to the natural world as a privileged guest. Its fun to immerse ourselves in this world, have a swim at lunch time, skinny dipping in a secluded spot. These are magical days that feed your soul.
