    Just a little video my friend made of our recent canoe trip down the Derwent. We had beautiful autumn weather!

    That was a very pleasant way to spend five minutes watching :D

    Lovely looking river, if a bit snaggy with trees along the banks, was it running high ?

    Nice one :D Thank you for sharing :cool:

    It was fairly high judging by the growth on the banks. Yeah a really lovely stretch of river but yes very snaggy.
    We eventually ran into a huge willow that had come down right across the river and a great pile of scummy debris had built up behind it. Even our friend in the kayak couldn't find a passage through.
    Bit of a shame but I enjoyed the hike just as much.

    Best way to travel hopefully and be adaptive when necessary…..the pub and a decent beer at the end couldn't harm either :D

    Great little trip and a nice video of it as well.

    What was the music for the first part of it?

    It was a fine pint well earned, only downside was the prospect of having to drive back and drag the boats through a muddy field to get them loaded.

    Thanks! Not sure on the music, it's from the free music archive. That have some surprisingly good stuff on there.

    Lovely to watch over a well earned late Sunday breakfast! I must get out in a canoe again, it's been a long time and this has spurred me to action....................

    Nice looking trip and river ... it has made me envious now that I cannot paddle any more...
