An Ode to Kayaking, Camping, Company and the Caledonian Canal

Once upon a time, seven days ago,
An eclectic group of paddlers,
Set off for an adventure,
Their excited faces aglow.
Eight people in all,
Some tall some small,
There was Nigel who with his dry humour and wit,
Along with others planned much of the trip and helped us not quit.
There was Andy who has a very lovely skill,
Of being at ease with all & gourmet chocolate was our fill,
Mike was a very helpful paddler to all of us,
Made carry straps etc. without any fuss,
