It has been a long time since Cedar (our cedar strip canoe) has touched the water. Now dry docked in our back garden due to the loss of our front caravan tent she hasn’t seen much action this summer.
I wasn’t sure that we were going to paddle very far. In my mind, I wanted our first canoe paddle of the year to be more than just hitting the water. I was determined to do my best and if my back acted up we could always turn back to the camping.
By the end of the day, we experienced a sunrise and and sunset from our Cedar beauty on the lake.
We are now at the end of our vacation and sadly at the end of the Dutch Open Canoe Festival 2018.
We made new friends, saw old friends, learned new things and learned a bit about how “Cedar” was built. Plus we paddled a good about of kilometers for us.
Here are three pictures of today more to follow with our follow up blog on the event.

We found that getting to the store is easier to paddle and dock right outside the store located next to the water than to take the car.
12.8km today through the Werribben. Beautiful.
We arrived yesterday at the National Park Weerribben-Wieden. Since I am only on my IPhone I will only post a couple of pictures this week. Then write a complete blog about our adventures when we return.

Instantly, we both knew this launch point was very shallow.
