Eel Pie Island Canoe Trip.
What a wonderful way to spend a Sunday.
It has made me want to do more on the river.
Great fun and well organised!
You couldn't pick a lovelier part of the river to canoe on, or a better company to do it with!
Perfect trip. Wonderful guide!
My 12 year old was reluctant to get on the water..... "We should do this again" she said as we paddled back.
