Paddling is about friends & family coming together, and it develops an extended sense of community that connects us with the natural world. .
From Coboconk to Katchawanooka, from Bobcaygeon to Brighton, this lovely video by @JustenSoule
shows a few of the talented, friendly souls we met along the Trent-Severn. We discovered so many fun ways that you can step off the waterway to enjoy good food, great arts, and (of course) the best company. .
Every step (or stroke) of the way we were treated to the companionship and expert guidance of Bretton, Briagh, Lily and Avery. They are such a lovely family and a remarkable tripping team. To paraphrase @zachbaranowski
(who did a takeover here a few weeks ago): every once in a while you come across extremely positive human beings. They are truly passionate and knowledgeable about what they do. They love to spread that knowledge and positivity. .
That’s Bretton & Briagh in a nutshell, and also their daughter Lily, who enthusiastically and patiently taught me pretty much everything I now know about wild edibles. Every day with them is a treat and an enriching learning experience. Whether you’re a seasoned paddler or entirely new to it, you’re in good hands with The Land. .
