Over the August Bank Holiday a number of club members travelled to the Outney Meadow campsite at Bungay for 2 days of paddling on the River Waveney. Below is an article written by, Jasmine, about the first day’s trip, which was from Homersfield back to Outney Meadow. Hope you like it.
My River Journey
On the Saturday of the August bank holiday I canoed a 9 mile river journey with a lot of the canoe club.
We had to drive in the car for about 10 minutes to get to the launching point where we were going to canoe from, back to where we were camping. We started off in a pretty and clear shallow stream with a little current to push us along.
We paddled like his for about a 2 hours having to get out of the nearest launching point for lunch. Last year, though I wasn’t there, they had hail while trying to eat their lunch. It was quite windy this time and soon it started thundering and pouring down with rain!! You’ll never believe what happened next. Hail!!!!!!! On the same day, practically the same time as last year, the same place and everything; it was hailing again.
As we paddled back for about one hour we passed lots of conker trees, and a swan AND lots of mooing cows who just stared at us chewing blades of grass.
Now we were at the end of the river journey. It was long but it was very fun and I had a nice warm shower afterwards.
