The Borrowed Canoe
The husband of my mother knows someone who owns a canoe and he got the offer to borrow that canoe for three weeks. We usually used a rubber raft when we wanted to have some fun on a river but it´s quite difficult to paddle with a rubber raft if you want to get ahead on the river. I think a rubber raft is only good if you have an outboard motor but then you can´t use it on all rivers due to the fact that most rivers are parts of a nature reserve and it is not allowed there, understandably.
So, we always wanted to use a canoe but we simply never bought one. As we have one borrowed now, we were able to test the canoe boat yesterday. On the image above you can see the canoe in the garage, before we did put this thing on the car. The car of mom´s husband has fortunately a mounting on the roof for those cases, which is quite cool. The canoe is a good one as you see. The canoe is quite large and made of aluminium but anyway it has it´s weight, that´s what we noticed when we did put this thing on the car roof.
We drove to Salem yesterday and I mentioned often that there are many beautiful rivers. We tested the canoe there which is why I have lots of cool new photos that I will upload to my blog over time. It was a lot of fun but to be honest, I have muscle ache in my arms today. Anyway, it was so cool and a canoe is much more fun than a rubber raft. I am still excited.
