Canoeing in September



The canoers come from the lake ......


....at the old power station they'll have to move the boats
across land down to the river Gudenå, not a long distance,
but the boats are heavy with luggage for the holiday.......


First boat...............


good team-work


hold on........... he fell, but I did not take a photo, I'm
not a paparazzi!


..........now they are soon ready for the next etape of
Tour de Gudenå


good companions, no yelling, just taking it easy.....


second boat off............
they are lucky, it's fine weather today...


last boat off, now he's got time to lit his pipe...............

Have a nice trip!

Canoeing is so fun. I didn't get to go this year...yet. Still time, perhaps. I like your side quotes with photos.

Hej Teresa! You can still go canoeing then, but you're busy in your new place now I guess. I have never been in a canoe, I'm sure I would tip over! But it looks very cosy.

I love Mark Twain. "Be careful about reading health books. You may die of a misprint." He's got such a great sense of humour.

.....and now it was Equinox and now it is soon week-end again and soon it will be Christmas! ´)

That looks so lovely Grethe. I laughed at you not being a papparazi. Very kind!

Thyra said...

Hej Joan! Thanks! I often laugh at myself. People in general don't like to have a camera stuck up in their face, so I try to blend with the background, but I don't hide behind a bush! ´)
Have a nice day!

What a nice photo series of their journey from the lake to the river. Was it a competition or just for fun?

Thyra said...

Hej! I don't think it was a competition. They looked like it was pure joy and were very relaxed. And the weather was fine. It's not fun when it's raining! I suppose they've got extra rain-wear in the canoe!
