Spring is here and I feel so alive! This Good Friday turned out to be a really good Friday when I had my first outing – a canoeing trip along the canals in Ash Vale. What a sweet delight to be on the crystal clear water! The sun was smiling gold; birds were circling under the blue sky – plenty of them as there’s a nature reserve by the canal, and goose and ducks are swimming about. In the bright light, the water sparkled like fish scale. Loved every minute of the more than 3 hours trip.
