This was great! Being on this type of canoe for the first time was a challenge but after a few minutes, you manage to sail almost smoothly. To be fair, it was quite windy so it added to the challenge, but it was fun! The stories Majel told us were very informative and she was very welcoming: she let us dry off at her place while we ate our sandwiches and even offered us a slice of delicious apple pie. All in all, it was a very enjoyable experience!
