it's summer, and time to think about getting off dry land. here's your question:
what is your favorite water transportation? who else would be in your boat, and where would you be - lake, ocean, etc.?
in my ideal, i am canoeing on a peaceful lake in maine with my mother. she is bossy, and tells me on which side to put my paddle. this doesn't bother me, however, and we have a relaxing conversation as we go under the bridge and into the smaller part of the lake. we see the plants coming up through the water, and push off rocks with the oars to avoid getting stuck. the weather is lovely, so while we are getting exercise, it's not strenuous. when finished, together we drag the canoe out of the water and turn it upside down on the wooden rack.
