A great evening on the River Soar

We enjoyed a great paddle last week with Quorn Activity Club on the River Soar, a very nice loop with only a couple of portage. Our first longish trip in an open canoe. It was very pleasant and Beryl loved it, such a warm evening, beautiful landscape and great people. Also, getting used to a village way of life.
