There is one view of the water, with your feet in the water looking out to the wind, the waves and the sky. Then there is the other view of the water where you are low in the water in your kayak, absorbing the peace of the dawn as your paddle dips rhythmically, almost silently. This second view is my favourite; for there I can see the water playfully reflecting the rocks and trees with ever changing delight.
