The 4th

The fourteen Scouts and Leaders loaded up their gear in three cars and set off early on Saturday morning, with the plan of driving up to Wroxham where we would meet the people from The Canoe Man who were going to guide us. We arrived in plenty of time and were then transported to the starting point upriver at Aylsham. We told the Scouts that they should bear in mind that the time we spent in the minibus getting to the start point, related to the distance that we would have to paddle back to Wroxham. The longer the journey in the bus took, the more daunting the prospect became!
