Recently I've been privileged to join the High Heathercombe tribe for a day trip, canoeing on the Dart river.
It was a beautiful day and the weather was perfect for it.
If I'm not mistaken there was around 23 people on the trip. A big happy bunch.
I totally recommend Canoe Adventures for those who want to experience river Dart from different perspective, breathe some fresh air, meet some seals and have a lot of fun doing it.
We had a quick health & safety and intro to canoeing and soon we've set off.
Canoeing is a perfect way to see the river from a different perspective than walking along side of it. It is a truly remarkable experience and I enjoyed it immensely.
Especially with a bunch of friends... :)
After some time on the river, when our arms and shoulders needed some rest we stopped at the Rivershack Cafe in Stoke Gabriel for a quick ice cream.
Unfortunately they don't have non dairy ice cream. It was a nicely refreshment nonetheless and soon we went back to our paddles.
We paddled for a while, enjoying the Nature and when our shoulders needed to rest again we stopped for a picnic and a swim (I didn't swim though :P).
I took the opportunity to take a few photos...
On the way back, we saw seals that come into Dart with the tide to dine.
It was a truly amazing day.
We sang songs.
We got wet.
We laughed a lot.
I'm very grateful to Mel for the opportunity to join the tribe on such an amazing day.
It's a privilege to be part of the High Heathercombe Tribe.
