As always it is sad to see the end to another Dutch Open Canoe Festival. Seeing old paddling friends, making new ones and always the learning that goes with new ideas or new techniques.
This year that included learning what each of us considered acceptable risk just to attend. What about bathrooms? Where should we stay as the event brings people from all around Europe and most of all can we still interact with old canoe paddle buddies and still maintain our distance. What challenges!
I will write a detailed blog later this week on our experiences from the weekend but promised two young paddlers that I would post a few pictures. To keep my promise before this old canoe paddler takes a nap to recover from so much excitement over the weekend here you go young people.😊
Best wishes and safe a healthy travels to everyone who attended. Until next season.😊

I just finished reading The Art of the Wasted Day by Patricia Hampl. A Minnesota writer. Her book talks about the art of people who have wasted time in solitude then produced some wonderful work from their inner reflections. I realized that I have wasted some time recently in my own way, instead of locking myself in a castle tower I travelled to our seasonal campground and launched myself onto the waters surrounding De Kaag. As far as producing wonderful worldly works… well let’s just say I am still searching to improve.
